There's something about a margarita. It's festive, it's light, and most importantly, it's simple. And it always delivers. With the launch of our Smoke Y Margarita, we are excited to share some details about the maker behind the smoky magic.
We asked creator and founder, Michael Kaz why he started Glossop's and what he wants crafted cocktail drinkers (and budding home mixologists everywhere) to know about Glossop's specifically and cocktails in general.
Glossop’s was started in 2013 by cocktail enthusiast and native Angeleno, Kaz. Kaz has been making his own flavored syrups at home for years. It all started when he wanted to improve on his dad’s version of the family drink, the old fashioned. He found that making a Meyer lemon syrup packed much more lemon aroma into the cocktail than one piece of rind ever could. With friends constantly asking for syrup for their cocktails and sodas, and a stable of different flavors built up, Kaz finally decided to bring his syrup to the public.
And now, Glossop’s makes your cocktail! The line of syrups was designed exclusively with cocktails in mind. In short, Glossop’s Syrup was born from a desire to make it easier to create craft cocktails at home.
Glossop’s can work for you whether you just want to throw some flavor into a glass of Vodka and soda, or get creative and make a Smoked Sugar Brandy Flip or a SMOKE Y MARGARITA. Glossop’s is there to support and enhance your cocktail, not to mask the flavor of cheap vodka or drown your drinks in sugar.
Glossop’s Syrup is made locally in Los Angeles from natural ingredients.
The Smoke Y Margarita is unique in that the smoked sugar syrup provides such an alluring smoky scent, it's like having a cocktail on a beach with a bbq happening right near by. Not enough smoke? Try it with mezcal. Either way, it's a refreshing start to celebrate Spring.
