Key Lime Concentrate

Key lime is truly a distinct citrus fruit. More aromatic than the more common Persian Lime, the fruit's popularity is attributable to its complex acidic flavor profile. Our Key Lime Concentrate captures these sublime flavor characteristics without added sugar or artificial ingredients. Key Lime is a universal ingredient, perfect for cocktails, ice cream, salads, martinis, and desserts.
