Robinsons Blackcurrant Cordial (Ocado) By @SpectreUK

Robinsons Blackcurrant Cordial

I don't usually write about cordials. In fact I can't remember if I have written about one in the past. Apparently, so Cinabar tells me, this cordial is a momentous release. It's the first time Robinsons have produced a Blackcurrant cordial. I drink huge amounts of Ribena and also Vimto. I've tried other supermarket brands of blackcurrant flavoured cordials, but none of them ever seem to match up. It makes me wonder what this Robinsons Blackcurrant cordial will be like, and if it has the juice (pun intended) to run the gauntlet of my tastebuds.... just trying to build up some tension...

At double strength I shouldn't have to put so much in the glass as I usually do with other cordials before adding water. This Robinsons Blackcurrant cordial is made with real fruit juice and has no added sugar, which is always a preference of mine where cordials are concerned. There was certainly a strong blackcurrant fruity smell on opening the bottle. I tipped half the amount into my glass than I usually do with my other two favourite cordials, and then added filtered water. On taste this Robinsons Blackcurrant cordial is very fruity indeed. I definitely didn't need to go too heavy on it. The blackcurrant flavour is strong and sweet. It's definitely going to be a regular blackcurrant cordial in the house from now onwards. Nice one Robinsons!
