Get away, to discover and explore all the richness and diversity of an ingredient with the most recognisable flavours of all: sugar.
Among all sugar cane producing countries, Mauritius is known to offer one of the best qualities. Its volcanic earth, combined with a humid climate, forms an ideal eco-system for the production of high quality sugar cane.Often considered as the artisanal sugar of the people from which it takes its name, Muscovado is the unrefined version of cane sugar. It naturally contains some molasses which give it a brown colour, a doughy texture and a complex flavour profile of slightly bitter caramel.
Its production, completely artisanal, has remained unchanged for decades.
The sugar cane is pressed until juice is obtained. This resulting liquid, also called cane juice, is then filtered, heated and stirred by hand until it has completely dried out. It’s at this stage that all the nutrients are being concentrated but also develop all the aromatic range. The powder obtained will remain slightly damp and gives Muscovado sugar its typical characteristics.
Mauritius is famed for offering the largest variety of Muscovado sugar in the world. Some sugars are very soft and light while others are dark with very bitter notes; the range is unbelievably rich. To enrich our selection of MONIN aromatic sugars, we have based our choice on the balanced flavour and character, with bitter caramel and gingerbread notes, perfectly adapted to mixology use for bartenders and barista.
