We steam distill our hydrosol from trees grown in the shadow of Mt. Shasta at 3500 feet elevation. These trees have been here for hundreds of years and have weathered the most extreme conditions of harsh cold winters and years of California droughts. Many herbalist believe that desert plants that have thrive in demanding environments have are more powerful. First we crush the berries and then we slow distill them in a hybrid stainless steel/copper still. The aroma is fresh and crisp, very aromatic and sweet, with wood and citrus notes.
