Syrup Spotlight: Demerara Gum Syrup




Known as a raw cane sugar, demerara sugar is minimally processed for full flavor. Whole sugarcane is crushed and its golden juice is left to slowly evaporate. What’s left are large, unrefined crystals that still retain some molasses, giving demerara sugar a deep, toffee flavor. This delightful sugar is originally from Guyana, where the Demerara River runs. Rum fans have probably also heard of Guyana's sugar cane demerara rums - the original rum supplied to the British Navy. Guyana which has been producing sugar since the 17th century, though a lot of demerara sugar available today is from Mauritius. 

Demerara sugar close upThe toffee note has made demerara sugar a favorite among coffee and tea drinkers. And the coarse, crunchy texture makes demerara a great topping for baked goods. We love the rounded sweetness of demerara sugar and how it can complement cocktails without becoming a dominating flavor. We found a perfect ratio of sugar to water, for just the right level of sweetness. And added in gum arabic to help give you a silky smooth cocktail every time.
