We're pleased to have found a niche in the world of cocktails that has worked well for us over the year and we want to expand deeper into craft cocktail products like craft syrups, bitters and tonics. The syrup category is especially awesome as it brings everything from a flavored simply syrup like those from Royal Rose to Shrubs (coming soon), and of course the many varieties of craft cocktail bitters.
With this direction you'll find more varieties of well known recipe components like orgeat and falernum but from brands that create entirely natural and flavorful products like B.G Reynolds, where you'll find an orgeat syrup that contains almonds, not just artificial flavors that mimic an almond. The products are not colored to look super appealing, often showing up as a brown color or something less interesting as the craft product is designed to bring the "craft" into the mix, not the color.
Recently we brought Jack Rudy into the store and has done quite well with our customers, another product with actual natural ingredients, no artificial flavorings, colorings and definitely NO high fructose corn syrup.
Of course, we'll continue to carry glassware and especially tiki's, but you'll find most new products introduced in 2015 will be craft tonics, shrubs, syrups and even more bitter brands!
