Dutch Syrups And Cordials

The Netherlands, a country with a rich history in distillation and the world of spirits, also boasts a legacy of syrups and cordials that are steeped in tradition. These uniquely Dutch concoctions, once a staple in households across the country, have found renewed acclaim in the modern cocktail scene, infusing beverages with a touch of Dutch heritage.

Another classic is "Vruchtenlimonadesiroop" or fruit syrup. These syrups, derived from a variety of fruits such as berries, currants, and citrus, are concentrated and sweet. They can be easily diluted to create refreshing non-alcoholic beverages but are equally effective as a sweetening agent in cocktails, imparting a rich fruity note.

A must-mention is "Siroopwafel" syrup, inspired by the beloved Dutch treat, the stroopwafel. This caramel-esque syrup is often used in modern mixology to add a comforting, caramelised sweetness to cocktails, especially those with a base of dark spirits like rum or whiskey.

In the realm of herbal syrups, "Kruidensiroop" holds a special place. Made by infusing a blend of herbs, spices, and sugar, this syrup carries complex flavours that can add depth and intrigue to a myriad of cocktails. Given the resurgence of herbal and botanical-focused cocktails, Dutch Kruidensiroop has become a sought-after ingredient in many avant-garde bars across the globe.

Beyond traditional syrups, the Netherlands also has a legacy of cordials, like the "Oranjebitter", which is flavoured with orange peel, lending it a slightly bitter, aromatic profile. While originally crafted to celebrate royal occasions, it's found its niche in cocktail bars, offering a bittersweet twist to many drinks.

Modern mixologists, always on the lookout for unique ingredients, have embraced these Dutch syrups and cordials with enthusiasm. They offer a way to introduce traditional Dutch flavours into contemporary drinks, bridging the gap between past and present.
