Salt promotes the release of saliva helping to perceive flavours in a cocktail. Not only does Bar40 Salt help with flavour perception, but it also increases the perceived viscosity of a cocktail. A viscous mouth feel leads to longer interactions with taste buds, leading to a desirable mouthfeel and an overall rounded and satisfying experience. Salt is able to suppress bitter and sour flavours while strengthening sweetness. Bar40 Salt can be used at such low levels that it doesn’t have to be detected by the tongue for its functionality. This means that a drink doesn’t have to taste salty in order for the suppression of sour and/or bitter compounds or an increase in sweetness to be noted. Salt also suppresses the bite from alcohol, rendering a smooth flavourful cocktail with its addition.

  • Add Bar40 Salt to a cocktail that is overly bitter to balance the flavour profile.
  • Add Bar40 Salt to a cocktail that is overly sour to balance flavour and provide a perceived sweetness.
  • Add Bar40 Salt to a cocktail with an overly harsh alcohol burn, to reduce this sensation.
