A Tropical Delight: There’s no better feeling than sipping on a tall glass of chilled sparkling Kokum juice on a hot mid-day afternoon to cool your body, reinvigorate your senses and transport your soul to the beaches of Konkan & Goa. Getting there is easy with our Kokum Syrup. Just add 1 part of our Kokum Syrup to 4 parts of water or soda and serve with a generous amount of ice.
Traditional Recipe: Our Kokum Syrup is prepared using wild-grown GI Kokum fruits from Sindhudurg, Maharashtra, India. Kokum juice along with Kokum solids/rinds are filtered, mixed with sugar and flavoured using local “Cumin” (a.k.a Jeera) to produce this all natural Kokum Syrup. This age old recipe has been passed on from one generation to the next.
Provenance & Silviculture: As of January 2017, Kokum Fruits from Sindhudurg have bagged an international GI (Geographical Identification) tag. Garcinia Indica trees or simply “Kokum” (pronounced: Ko-kam) trees as they are known locally have been growing for eons in the wild, in and around hilly areas of the western coast of Maharashtra in India.
No Additives & No Preservatives: We do not use any artificial colourants or flavours while preparing our Kokum Syrup. Kokum Syrup in its innate form is self-preserving in nature and has a long shelf-life if it’s stored properly.
Healthy, Vegetarian & Vegan: Kokum juice alleviates ailments resulting from indigestion and acidity. During hot and humid summers, it’s often used as a counter for “heat-strokes” and a delicious re-hydration fluid. It has a cooling effect on the body. It’s also known to clear out toxins and has significantly high levels of Vitamin C.
