Syrups & Mixers
Classic syrups are a staple of any well-stocked bar. Grenadine, Orgeat, and Simple syrup are the syrups used in many a classic cocktail.
Aside from these tradition syrups, there are some wonderful fruity artisan syrups too. If you’re looking to add some extra flavourful fruity kick to your cocktails that even fresh seasonal fruits in a blender can’t produce, you may want to explore this selection of artisan syrups.
Syrups are also splendid outside of the bar: to sweeten coffee, as a syrup on french toast or pancakes, to perk up a simple chocolate milkshake, for non-alcoholic drinks or anything else your can imagine.
Ginger Beer Syrups offer a sense of nostalgia as new trends have shoppers opting for brands and flavours they enjoyed in their childhood. "Ginger beer is back. As consumers look for natural ingredients and nostalgic flavours, old-fashioned drinks take centre stage again." (Trade magazine The Grocer)
Syrups are made from fresh ingredients, and therefore need to be refrigerated after opening.
Tonic Syrups are essentially, quality tonic water, minus the water. Tonic water is traditionally a quinine based bitter drink. Quinine comes from the bark of the South American cinchona tree - the word quinine is from the Quechua (Inca) word for that bark. The magic of tonic syrups is that they give you complete control over the flavour. You pour in the syrup and then add soda water to dilute to taste. This means your syrup will last a while and you don't have to worry about your bottle of tonic ever going flat! The tonics in our range are made of all-natural ingredients, so please refrigerate after opening.
Shrubs, also known as drinking vinegars, derive from the original methods of fruit preservation in colonial era U.S. They have now been reinvented to offer lively combinations of intense fruit essence and tart acidity. A Shrub is a combination of sweet and savoury flavors: vinegars, sugar and fruits, aromatics and tart essences. Many Shrubs are produced using a cold-press technique to maintain the bright, zesty flavors that are damaged by heat-based extractions.
