    Cassis Extract

    Posted by Greg Logan on Jan 23rd 2021

    Based on my initial experience in the nose and on the palate, this is some of the most disgusting stuff I've ever experienced. I find it tastes like a cheap grape juice knock off. I Expect to return it however I will do a slight bit more research to confirm my findings. I am very disappointed as I was looking to people to find a substitute for Cassis Liquer look here which contains far too much sweetener.

    Great find!

    Posted by Sheldon Cheng on Apr 21st 2017

    I love that black currant is a possibility on OliveNation. Here in the US it's not always easy to get black current flavour so I was really pleasantly surprised when I found it here! Gives me a little taste of home.

    Variety and Quality

    Posted by Luke on May 26th 2016

    I have used many extracts from Olive Nation and have been very happy, the black currant being no exception. Primarily, I use them to fortify the fresh fruit flavors in homemade ice cream and sorbets. When added in the correct ratio they perform well by enhancing, not overpowering.

    not good for flavored water

    Posted by Kristine on Feb 29th 2016

    I recently built a home carbonation system to make my own sparkling flavored water. I purchased these ten flavors in that pursuit. I tried each flavor in my water several times to try and give them a fair test. 1. Black Currant (Cassis) Extract – too bitter for flavored water (I don’t add sugar or stevia), not very potent 2. Red Raspberry Extract – Ok but really weak for my purpose. 3. Orange Extract – Not great at all, chalky taste, the Watkins orange oil from Walmart is better 4. Lime Extract – I was blown away by the awesomeness. Potent and bang on flavor! 5. Cherry Extract – Good “hint” water but not as potent or amazing as the Lime and Pineapple 6. Peach Extract – not good for “hint” water I couldn’t tell what the flavor was even after adding 4x as much as the lime or pineapple 7. Pineapple Extract – I was blown away by the awesomeness. Potent and bang on flavor! 8. Blackberry Extract – underwhelmed. It is weak and tastes more green and brambly than like the lush blackberries I love 9. Lemon Extract – Very accurate lemony flavor, quite potent 10. Strawberry Extract – Accurate flavor but very weak for the purpose of “hint water”, I would not purchase again I had some disappointments and some delightful surprises. The only flavors I would for sure repurchase would be the Lime, Pineapple and Cherry. Most people will purchase for baking and not for flavored water which is why I clearly am stating my purpose/use for the flavors.

    Really good extract

    Posted by vicki on Dec 26th 2015

    I use it in my coffee and tea. Gives the ho-hum cup of hot beverage pizazz. Flavor is much more then a hint, so be sure to buy the droppers so as to regulate the amount. Droppers are great for all your extracts. Holds down the waste of having it run down the sides.

    Black Currant extract

    Posted by Joye on Aug 18th 2012

    I bought this extract to add to my pitcher of iced tea and it makes a very nice Black Currant tea. I use about 1/2 teaspoon per 2 quarts of tea so it has lasted quite a while. Ive also tried Peach extract Chai and Mango and they are all good in iced tea. Im going to add the different flavors in batches of cupcakes next and experiment with that! Thanks.

    Terrific Flavor

    Posted by Susan on Aug 18th 2012

    I use this extract in my yogurt smoothies and wine to make Kir. I have given it as a gift to many friends and family and they all love it.
