Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser Tamarind

Von Humboldt’s Tamarind Natur Wasser is the result of a collaboration with author Andrea Wulf, inspired by her book The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World. Reading the story of the adventurer and naturalist, we found that Humboldt had concocted a folk recipe during his travels: using the pod-like fruit of the tamarind, he turned unsavory water into a refreshing “lemonade.” The delicious fruit was infused along with lemon zest and golden brown sugar, creating a unique cordial that is equal parts sweet, tangy and nutty.
