Les Charlatans, Montreal
Les Charlatans is a small Montreal-based company that excels in making all natural, hand crafted syrups that are both fun to use and tasty. Whether they're mixed with sparkling water, thrown into a dish or blended in a cocktail, they can brighten any kind of gets together. The founder, Jeanne, grew up in France and she remembered how a dash of syrup could make a huge difference in mineral water, be it blackcurrant, orgeat or any homemade creation. That idea was then developed when she moved to Montreal and the brand was born!
