In order to pick the best tasting rosewater for different purposes I thought it best to look at all the easily available rosewaters in Australia at supermarkets and over the internet. I have analysed them based on flavour and fragrance.
To make it fair, I considered their taste and odour before cooking them into Rosewater Syrup (Cordial). I also smelled their fragrance during cooking. Each taste test had at least a half hour break between so I could cleanse my palate.
This is my subjective analysis and opinion.
Cortas (Ingredients: Rosewater)
Overall winner was Cortas, but a good runner-up was Al-Rabih.
