A very scrumptious little beverage. Can remember my gran having some in a bigger bottle "for medicinal purposes". I think my mum and dad may also have had some. My husband is a convert..

I tried this with some very rough "cooking grade" Calvados and it made a very pleasant drink. When out of brandy I have used Whisky, never tried it with Gin, perhaps this winter!

I could not agree with Vicky P more. Lovage mixed with brandy is a superb nightcap or after-dinner drink. I once invited a couple of neighbours to try it and they are now well and truly in love with Lovage taken with their favourite tipple.

I tried Lovage many years ago and thought how under rated it really is! I add it to sloe gin, to make a delicious, comforting drink - not just for Christmas either!

Lovage is one of the most underrated, and indeed unheard of, mixers known to mankind. You can take the cheapest and nastiest brandy (yes even that stuff you only bought for xmas as great uncle Ernie likes one, for medicinal purposes) and just add a drop of this cordial to it. Your taste buds will be in heaven as you savour the sweet mellowness and honey like texture sliding down your throat. I've only tasted it with brandy and it's brilliant as a winter warmer or just as a soothing, relaxer at the end of the day.
