J.T. Copper Sweet Mint Syrup
A delicate mint syrup infused with a touch of vanilla, this classic cocktail accoutrement is equally at home in a Mint Julep as it is in a creamy winter nightcap or a decadent, chocolate indulgence.
Based out of Floyd, Virginia, J.T. Copper is run by Theda Anderson and Jolie Greatorex. As lifelong baking enthusiasts frustrated by the lack of natural flavorings available on the market, they joined forces to craft a line of their own.
Their love of artisanal extracts eventually led them to create an array of award winning artisan cocktail syrups. Their products contain none of the fillers, additives, and synthetics commonly found in mass-produced flavorings, and are crafted using ingredients sourced as locally as possible. In the quest for achieving cocktail terroir, they are a keystone Virginia artisan.
Everything about J.T. Copper speaks to careful inspiration. Their labels in particular speak to their love of ingenuity and resourcefulness. In brainstorming designs for their bottle labels, Theda and Jolie felt drawn to old feedsack bags as a source of inspiration. While charming, feedsack fabric tells the difficult story of folks in communities like Floyd. In challenging times of war and economic hardship, when money and materials like cloth were hard to come by, feedsack bags that stored products like grain and flour became essential for making essentials such as clothing and quilts.
Their labels speak to their respect for the raw materials behind the syrups they craft. From pomegranates and bees, to tiny turmeric roots and chili peppers, each bottle of J.T. Copper syrup is not only delicious, but thoughtfully designed.
