I don't like the Fee's because of the corn syrup.
It's kinda gross.
I use the Taylor Velvet and it tastes pretty damn good.




That's an excellent point CC. Unfortunately it's true across Fee's line. They use HFCS in everything they make, save for their bitters. You would think that with the movement towards artisanal products they would switch to cane sugar. I know that I would be inclined to buy more of their products if they stopped using HFCS.

The commercial brands taste so artificial to me. Whether it's HFCS or something else, I don't know. Fee's falernum is just plain awful if you ask me. There's just no substitute for making your own with it comes to falernum.

Yes there is! Trader Tiki's brand as mentioned above. Check it out, it may be "commercial" but it's just like homemade but without the mess or time.

Thanks Paul, your check is in the mail!

Seriously though, I just put out my
Falernum and I'm thrilled. Just like with the passion fruit syrup, I made it available because it's something I wanted available. Nothing goofy in it, just lime juice, sugar, clove oil, almond, and ginger, with a touch of gum to keep texture consistent.

I know what you're thinking... where's the rum? Well, it's a non-alcoholic product, but somewhere in the midst of production, a bottle of J.Wray makes its way to bottle heaven.

Anyhow, just thought I'd let you know that someone who gives a damn and has been making this at home for years has put something out there to make it a little easier for you. Seriously, it's good stuff made with real ingredients or I wouldn't put it out there.

Okole Maluna!

I left that opening for you and I knew you'd say that. Seriously, if it was available in stores here, I'd be the first in line. I'm ecstatic you're putting all of these syrups out. I think it's fantastic! However, for a product that has a relatively short shelf life, the shipping cost just puts it outside of my personal price bracket comfort zone. This is no fault of yours, just the way it is. "Impossible to obtain locally" rums are a different story because, well, they are otherwise impossible to obtain locally. So if I want them badly enough I'll pay whatever the price is. I really do hope to try your syrups some day though. I'll be in Portland/Seattle next June, so that's my best bet to bring some back and I'm looking forward to it.

Yeah, I have to admit to being predictable like that. I really ought to discuss things that aren't "BUY MY SYRUPS", but hey, go with what you know right?

Excellent! Do send me a PM when you'll be in town. I just got distribution in Louisiana, so... getting close to Florida all the time!

Well, I'm not on Trader Tiki's advertising payroll, but I can say that his Falernum is the best that I've tasted. I have the Fee's, JD Taylor, and Hanshell's and it's no contest. The TT is bright and spicy, perfectly balanced with the acid. Good work!
