Growing up in a family that originally hailed from Singapore I was
extremely blessed to be exposed to the wonders of Rose Syrup. I love this stuff!
Rose Syrup apparently originated in Singapore and as far as I'm
concerned, Singapore's T.G Kiat and Co. is the best brand to get!
Established in 1935, the company have obviously tried to retain an air
of tradition in their branding with their awesome vintage label.
I have yet to find a syrup that compares and we've only found one asian
grocery store in Melbourne that stocks it. If you've never tried the
stuff, I urge you to hunt it down. I think it's the perfect summer
drink, a unique idea for entertaining and definitely the perfect afternoon pick me up!(In fact, I"m having a glass right now!)
I recently found Mymouné Rose Syrup online from Simon Johnson (above)- It's a Lebanese brand. I've never tried it before but I'm intensely curious to see how it compares. It also has a pretty cool label! If anyone has tried it please let me know if it's any good.
Happy friday afternoon!
I'm really digging some of the hand-drawn lettering goodness coming out of Australia these days- especially from Grill'd. Their takeaway menu (above) and the wall art in their stores (below) are simply awesome! For more of their illustrative/typographical craziness check out their website. If anyone knows the illustrator responsible for this, please let me know!
I'm also a huge fan of the Hudsons Coffee wall art by Kleimeyer Industries (below). All very inspirational! :)
As promised in my previous article on DIY Authentic Vintage Herb Labels, I've also created four tea labels
for your collection- English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Chamomile and
Peppermint. In the photo I've used amber jars from T2 Teas. Download the labels below and please view the article
on DIY Authentic Vintage Herb Labels for instructions on how to create the vintage
paper effect on the labels.
