Cecil Mixed Fruit Drink

Cecil Mixed Fruit Drink Made by: CBL Fruits & Beverages (Pvt) Ltd

Origin: Sri Lanka

Imported into the UK: Serendib Global Foods UK

This fruit juice drink's pale burnt-orange colour fades to a yellow rim in the glass, and it contains a fine sediment of pureed fruit in suspension. The nose is dominated by a rich, heady, sweet aroma of tinned pineapples in syrup, with ripe mango in support and masking a dusty, warm background (think of a wooden chopping board).

On the palate sweet, lazy flavours of tinned fruit cocktail take over, followed by pineapple rings, and leaving behind a milky sweet, almost cloying sensation on the short finish. The fruit puree adds a slight texture in the mouth.

[Difficult to say what the bevvy of 'E numbers' added to this drink's note, however they didn't go unnoticed!]
