Interview with Trader Tiki on Serious Eats!
Somehow, the lovely Laren trapped me into talking about my syrups, and the creation of my small but fruitful syrup empire. Check it out for a bit of insight on what got me started, how I develop recipes, and just how many push-ups I can do in an hour! Okay, one of those is made up.
One of the things I pride myself on is openness and honesty about how I make the syrups and how I run my business. I know that a bottle can be so impersonal on the shelf, and want to make sure that anyone interested in doing so can ask me about the syrups. I might leave a sense of mystery (and/or industrial secret) kept out, but want to make sure that my customers and potential customers know I really give a damn about what I do, and have some experience in it to boot!
