A black lemon is an earthy, smoky, spice commonly used in Middle Eastern cooking. Contrary to the name, it is actually a dehydrated lime. The name of the spice was a mistranslation from Arabic to English ages ago. Despite not having any actual black lemon in this bitters, the bright and fresh lemon flavour has rich floral notes and deep earthy spices that are reminiscent of the black lemon, hence the name.
