I have been impressed by everything that I've had from BG Reynolds. I just came across his bottled mixers and was wondering if anyone has tried them, and if so what'd you think of them?

Mahalo!

I believe they just discontinued all but the Mai Tai mix.

Correct.

He is getting rid of most of the mixers and many of the syrups as well. Streamlining operations and inventory. Sad because I loved all his stuff, but my liver can only take so much.

The syrups too? Such as what? What's your source? I'm gonna flip!

I've noticed the Ginger Syrup is now missing from their site. Bummer! I loved that stuff!

As for Tippleman's Falernum, I found it way too sweat and not near spicy enough. B.G. Reynolds is my go-to when I want a full-flavored falernum, Taylor's Velvet when I want the more delicate flavor.

I was wanting to get another bottle of the lime cordial recently for some Suffering Bastards and noticed it had been yanked from their site (along with a bunch of other stuff). I guess I had better grab some online while I can, before it's Rose's Lime or nothing.

Exactly my stance too, only Taylor's tends to be everyday for me while BG's is my "treat yourself" falernum. Love it.

Try Stirrings "Clarified Key Lime". It's basically lime cordial with an exotic-sounding label and it works in all the same spots. Gimlets, Yellow Boxers, etc.

Wow, my luck is REALLY bad. That has been yanked from Stirrings' website and everywhere else I checked is out of stock, even Amazon.

You can always make your own.

Liber & Co. is my go-to ginger syrup. Give it a try if you can't find what you like?

To each their own. I used Taylor's most because it's easiest to find. But one time I had Taylor's, Reynolds, and Tippleman's all at the same time and did some taste tests and found Tippleman's to be what I enjoyed most. But then again that was before i was using 2:1 simple syrup, so maybe it was just a mouthfeel thing.

There are updates to the BG Reynolds website, including a bunch of the syrups and mixers being available again. Online ordering is also now available! Whew! I was worried there for a while.

Just received a sampler pack of the Mixers as a gift and I have to say mixed reviews.

The Zombie is ok, very heavy flavor of pernod. The Jet Pilot follows right behind, just doesn't have the grenadine flavor as expected

The Mai Tai mix wasn't good. The mix smells like Rose's Lime Juice and it has a very syrupy taste.

Any other experience the same?

I got them all when they first came out, and ended up pouring them all down the drain. Nice concept, and I have bought Reynold's syrups over the years, but I found the mixers to taste artificial and acrid.

One caveat, I now make all my own syrups (with the sole exception of Orgeat - for that I use Latitude 29's) so maybe my tastebuds have just gotten used to natural flavors. So your results may vary.
