team in Sydney, Australia. Wild Hibiscus Flowers

Hibiscus Flowers are unique in all the world and
are now sold in 30 countries across the globe
through retailers as prestigious as Harvey Nichols
in London, Citarella in New York & Galerie
Lafayette in Paris.
Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup was "discovered"
by happy accident at a lively Australian dinner
party in 1998, when Lee Etherington and a group
of (tipsy) friends playfully dunked a crimson
wildflower into a champagne flute. The
flower slid gracefully to the bottom of the glass,
and the friends watched, agog, as champagne bubbles
streamed across it, and the petals slowly unfurled.
Lee, a 21-year-old tour guide who owned a small
food business and had only ever used the edible
Hibiscus as a dessert garnish, took a sip of his

and prestigious retail stores in 16 countries
