Default Routin 1883 cane syrup

Just received my order from Coffee Authority which included a bottle of their cane syrup.

The label on the bottle reads: "Syrop-Syrup"
"Pure Cane Sugar"


My question/concern is that this product is not the type of cane syrup that I am looking for to make ti punches. IE petite syrop de canne.

Can anybody clarify this for me?

The Routin syrup and the Petit Canne are different.

This is what is in Routin:

No preservatives: Flash pasteurised and homogenized
* No fat, No cholesterol
* The pure water from the French Alps
* Sucrose and Fructose
* Colour of natural extracts
* Fruit juices and plants
* A concentration of flavouring

While Petite Canne sugar cane syrup is made from pure cane sugar grown only on Martinique and captures the rich flavor of the sweet fresh cane.
Contents: Sugar cane syrup,
ascorbic acid for color retention and
potassium sorbate as a preservative.

It looks to me like Routin is more a coffee syrup than a syrup for cocktails.
But that doesn`t mean it can`t be used in cocktails or in a Ti Punch, but that Petit Canne and similar syrups are better for use in Ti punches than coffee syrups.
But maybe you should try to find Petit Canne and make a comparaison?
Or maybe make your own syrup?

Here is a link to a thread in the White rums section where Ed explains about Petit Canne:

Thanks Tiare....when I read the label on the website, I was hoping that being all natural it would be very similar.

Trying to get actual cane syrup in Canada is brutal. Its either very expensive or more molasses based. Some companies in the US will not ship it to Canada IE HiTimes.

The best commercial syrup i have found so far is Monin.
It can be used both for drinks and coffees, desserts etc.

Monin? I'll have to look for it.

How would you rate it? Great? Average?

I rate it great. It tastes good and is useful for many things, i have used it for many years.
So then you might ask, why don`t i use it rather than making my own syrups? that is because making my own stuff is FUN! and my home made syrups with Tahitian vanilla cannot be found anywhere..
But i do use Monin as well.

Here is their website, it contains recipes too.

Is Monin a real sugar cane syrup though?

I read the ingredients and they were listed as 'pure cane sugar' and 'water'. Wouldn't that indicate it is processed sugar reconstituted with water rather than a product made by reducing sugar cane juice?

I haven't tried it by the way. I was put off by the ingredients list since it looked like nothing more than simple syrup.

I have never checked on that to be honest but it looks to me like its simple syrup. Nevertheless..i think Monin has a good taste.
I use it sometimes but mostly i make my own syrups.
I would love to try Petit Canne and some other syrups from the Caribbean but haven`t yet had the chance. Wonder when that will happen?
But Monin will always also be on my shelf regardless what other products i may have..my fridge is full of homemade stuff.

I like the Monin products. I have their raspberry, orgeat and passionfruit in the house now. I also bought their grenadine before and found it better than most, although later I switched to making my own.

For simple syrup though I don't see the point.

I have lately been thinking of trying to make my own Grenadine as i have never yet done that. Do you have any suggestions?
