Charleston, South Carolina
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 imainge.
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 it 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 process in order to express flavors from natural raw ingredients to make these syrups.
Created by bartenders for bartenders, Tippleman's is a series of cocktail syrps 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 throughtful techniques are applied to make a syrup complex in flavor and simple in use.
