All our rosewater is produced by steam distillation in an 8 ft. high glass apparatus. Roses are notoriously difficult to distill. Firstly, due to the huge quantity of roses that are required and secondly, because they form an impermeable layer when wet, which can cause pressure to build up in the still. Generally roses are distilled by immersing in water, but from our tests we find that the finest rose water is the result of steam distillation. After many months of trials we have developed an apparatus which enables us to steam distill roses successfully in an artisan rather than industrial process. This is our trade secret. The Rosewater is stored in miron glass (amthyst) bottles in small batches. The final stage requires the fine sense of smell and skill of the professional Perfumer, Le Nez.
