2. The Melting Pot:

The sugar and glucose syrup are gently melted together in large copper pans, under controlled temperatures, to form a clear solution.

Interesting fact: The temperature required to boil the mixture varies day to day and throughout the seasons. This is due to the varying temperatures and pressures of the surrounding environment.

3. A Minty Essence:

Once the desired consistency is achieved, peppermint oil is added to the mixture, infusing the blend with its distinctive minty essence.

We use a top-secret blend of Peppermint Oils from around the world to achieve our minty goodness.
