About Us

From Ancient Caravan Routes to Your Table

Treat your taste buds to an exotic culinary adventure. The delicious flavor of Silk Road Genuine Elixir is a unique blend of spices treasured by those who traveled the Silk Road. This important trade route between China and the Mediterranean bridged cultures and cuisines for close to 2,000 years. Silk, jade, lapis, art, medicine, and spices were highly prized. Of the spices, cardamom and saffron were considered the most valuable in the world and worth more than their weight in gold.

Cardamom, saffron, and other spices known for their health tonic qualities are slowly infused, cured, and bottled by hand to create Silk Road Genuine Original Elixir. This all-natural, non-alcoholic cordial syrup is made from only the finest ingredients and handcrafted in small batches in Santa Cruz, California, for your pleasure and well-being.

Add Sensuous Flavor to Drinks and Foods

A standout on any grocery store shelf in its violet bottle, Silk Road Elixir transports any food or beverage to new realms. Add to soda, cocktails, almond milk, and hot, steamy milk drinks. Concoct our signature drinks Silk Road Cocktail and Silk Road Elixir Soda at home or ask for them at your favorite bar or restaurant. They’re beautiful as well as intoxicating – with or without alcohol! Drizzle over ice cream, crepes, and other desserts. Whip up a savory, out-of-this-world marinade for everything – from vegetables, to tofu, to grilled meats, and fish. Explore a world of possibilities on our Recipes page!
