Les Charlatans (could be loosely translated as Snake Oil Salesmen) is a great line of small batch, handmade, well balanced and in good part organic cocktail syrups.
The makers, originally French, are now located in Montreal. Their inspiration was based on Old World syrup recipes, to which they gave a more contemporary twist. The syrup Chile and Tonka is a subtle mix between Chile Arbol (Mexican pepper) and tonka beans (contained in the fruit of Brazilian teak). You will find notes of vanilla, blackcurrant, almond, caramel and cinnamon. It is ideal for tiki cocktails, or any drink requiring a spicy and sweet touch.
Note: Excellent with coconut!
Of course, it can be enjoyed on ice cream, with soda water, for cooking, pastries, etc.
Les Charlatans is a small Montreal-based company that excels in making all natural, hand crafted syrups that are both fun to use and tasty. Whether they're mixed with sparkling water, thrown into a dish or blended in a cocktail, they can brighten any kind of gets together. The founder, Jeanne, grew up in France and she remembered how a dash of syrup could make a huge difference in mineral water, be it blackcurrant, orgeat or any homemade creation. That idea was then developed when she moved to Montreal and the brand was born!
