Founded by Jeanne Boucharlat, a native of France, she grew up with mint, blackcurrant and orgeat syrups and other scents being added to water. These treats would be offered to children as refreshing drinks, or to adults when added to alcohol. Upon arriving in Quebec, Jeanne discovered maple syrup. This discovery added a new dimension to her gourmet imagination as she discovered that syrup can also be used in cooking. The idea was then born to make syrups with multiple flavors to be served in drinks or to be included in the preparation of a meal.
