Seller: onlybitters (317) 100%, Location: Fitzroy Melbourne, Ships to: AU, Item: 172357630162 Brand: Small Hand Foods, MPN: 4SMHFGUMS, Details: Small Hand Foods Gum Syrup 251ml Country of origin: USA Alcohol content: 0% Alcohol by Volume Also known by its French spelling, gomme, gum syrup is a sugar syrup with gum arabic, a resin from the Acacia tree, incorporated into it. Gum syrup fell out of favor with bartenders because it is difficult to make, and a straight simple syrup is both easier and cheaper. However, where both syrups add sweetness, gum syrup adds viscosity as well, giving a richer mouthfeel and weightier texture to cocktails. Organic cane sugar gives the syrup an amber color and a light molasses flavour. It is best used in aromatic, spirit-forward cocktails such as Sazeracs, Old-Fashioneds and Juleps. About Small Hand Foods: Small Hand Foods is owned and operated by Jennifer Colliau, a San Fracisco Bay Area native and bartender of 12 years. She has garnered praise for both her Small Hand Foods creations and her unique bartending style. What is "gum?" What is "gomme?" "Gum" in our syrups refers to gum arabic, the resin from the gum acacia tree. It has little flavor and is used to add viscosity to cocktails. It was prevalent in cocktail books in the late 1800s, but by the 1920s, bartenders tended to favor straight simple syrup as it was far cheaper and easier to make. However, simple syrup cannot compare to the lush texture and viscosity of a true gum syrup. Using it in spirit-forward cocktails like Old Fashioneds, Sazeracs and Juleps transform flavorful yet thin cocktails into rich, luscious examples. As for the spelling, "gomme" is the French word for gum. Several French words migrated into bartending guides, gomme as well as orgeat (literally barley, but evolved into almond syrup) and grenadine (from grenade, pomegranate) as well as bartending terms like frappe. Being the grammar nerd that Jennifer is, she couldn't put two languages in the same product title. If she had gone French, the Pineapple Gum Syrup label would have read "Gomme D'Ananas," and then no one would have known what it was. As for the Orgeat, Jennifer felt the French word had come into the common lexicon enough to warrant its use. Please refrigerate after opening Once opened, a bottle of Small Hand Foods syrup can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on storage conditions. Temperature, frequent opening and closing, and local bacteria and yeasts can all affect the life of an opened bottle of syrup. Kept refrigerated and used only now and then, as they might be in someone's home, syrups may last a couple months. Kept at room temperature and used frequently, as they would be in a bar setting, bottles will usually last a couple of weeks. In either case, it's easy to tell when syrup has gone off: if it develops mold, gets fizzy, or smells like cider vinegar, throw it out. Our syrups are made from food, so treat them as such and your cocktail experience will benefit! SHIPPING RETURNS PAYMENT We can ship to any address in Australia.
