With deep roots in the restaurant and bar industry, husband and wife team Joe and MariElena Raya sought out to make the best syrups your cocktails could imagine.
The Rayas often handcrafted many of the syrups used in drinks served at their Charleston pre-prohibition era bar, The Gin Joint. With limited bar space and equipment, they realized how difficult is was to prepare or source consistent and quality ingredients. As Joe and MariElena’s business adventures expanded to include Bittermilk, a line of handcrafted cocktail mixers, they acquired the equipment and perfected the processes in order to express flavors from natural raw ingredients to make these syrups.
Created by bartenders for bartenders and home cocktail enthusiasts alike, Tippleman’s is a series of “Not Quite Simple Syrups” that help bartenders easily introduce more complex flavor characteristics into cocktails and promote creativity behind the bar. Made in rather small batches, the finest quality ingredients are sourced and thoughtful techniques are applied to make a syrup that is complex in flavor and simple to use.
