The Mayans praised chocolate as the drink of the gods. The Aztecs used cocoa beans as a form of currency, and drank chocolate to prepare for war. Historically, chocolate has been central in cultural traditions across the world, transcending the bounds of time to become a classic flavour in a variety of applications. Monin's highly concentrated chocolate syrup easily enhances espresso drinks, cocktails, and syrups.
Emerging as a response to lackluster cordials made available in Bourges, France, Monin was established in 1912. In the century that has passed since, Monin has become a powerhouse of syrup production, continuing to make strides in the industry in environmental, social, and philanthropic arenas. Monin is committed to fulfilling their environmental and social responsibilities, and continues to support ventures in these theatres, including sending excess syrup to feed bee colonies, funding research in cervical cancer among coffee-growing communities, and producing medical-grade hand sanitiser to support healthcare and customer-facing workers in the Tampa Bay area.
