The wild rose is in bloom in Alberta starting in late May and lasting until early August. The fragrant flowers are bright pink with petals 3-5 cm in size. When the wild rose is in bloom, its fragrances attract bees to gather and distribute the pollen. Wild roses can also be steeped to make wild rose tea. Meanwhile, wild rose hips are known for their high Vitamin C content and are used to make syrup, jelly, jams and marmalades. The Prairie Rose bitter incorporates both wild rose petals and rose hips with a collection of berries and botanicals to recreate the stoic aroma of the Alberta prairies. Pair this bitter with either a bourbon, rye whiskey or neutral grain spirit.
