Kalamansi limes/bottled juice in London?

Just back from a trip to SE Asia and missing the amazing limes used in drinks and dishes there. Has anyone found kalamansi limes, their bottled juice or another particularly aromatic Asian lime at a grocery store in London?

Many thanks.

  1. you can get it from the Viet namese supermarkets on Mare St in Hackney - Starlight is a particularly large//good one.

    1. Sounds interesting. Are they like a lime cordial?

      1. Thanks for the suggestion, pj26. I happened to stumble across some honey-sweetened syrup at a small Filipino grocery near Victoria. Apparently, the limes sometimes get imported, but only frozen. With some doctoring with fresh lime, it's almost as good as the original. Will report back if I find another similar product.
