True Syrups & Garnishes

“TRUE Syrups & Garnishes was founded out of a humble kitchen in Washington, DC in 2014 by a passionate cook and cocktail lover. Inspired by the cocktail revival in the US, we wanted to make natural mixers that hearken back to the days before synthetic chemicals, when everyone knew their bartender by name. Even though we've outgrown our humble origins and now operate out of Mess Hall, a food incubator space in Northeast D.C., we are still determined to make high-quality, small-batch mixers that bring out the nuanced flavors in specialty cocktails. We believe you deserve to have a drink the way it is meant to be, with authentic cocktail ingredients not loaded with fake additives.

TRUE Tonic Syrup was the first product we developed. We embarked on a journey to develop the ideal tonic syrup, throwing out dozens of near-perfect recipes and drinking a lot of gin in the process. We're pretty proud of our Original Recipe, and hope you like it as much as we do.”
