We will now distribute Tate and Lyle products to the brewing industry!
We have recently reached an agreement with ASR, more commonly known as Tate and Lyle, to become their distributor to the brewing industry. This arrangement opens up their full portfolio of products to ourselves and gives significant benefits to ourselves as well as strengthening a product line in which we have historically been able to offer relatively few materials. We will look to hold limited quantities of golden caster sugar, replacing the material we use at present. All other lines will be bought to order as customers require them.
Tate & Lyle® is the largest cane sugar brand in the United Kingdom and has been produced at the same refinery on the banks of the River Thames in London since 1878. Tate & Lyle Sugars are part of ASR Group – the largest vertically integrated cane sugar producer in the world. They focus principally on bringing specialty sugars and functional ingredients made from sugar cane to the EU marketplace.
Sugars in Brewing
- High fermentability of sugars allows extended brew lengths for more efficient brewing
- Add colour and flavour
- Reduced Nitrogen content vs Malt or other adjuncts
- Add body to Low Alcohol Beers
Comprising almost entirely of Sucrose and water our sugar syrups are an easy to use option for including sugar in your brews. From the pure sweetness of White Sugar Syrup to the darker more complex flavours of Amber and Black Sugar syrups.
‘Inverting’ the di-saccharide Sucrose into the mono-saccharides Fructose and Glucose creates ‘Invert Sugar.’ As well as being directly fermentable, Invert Sugar is sweeter than conventional Sugar (Sucrose) and allows for a higher solids level syrup with a longer stable life. Our extensive range of Invert Syrups including the world famous ‘Lyle’s Golden Syrup’ is a flavourful and efficient alternative to conventional sugar
Treacles (also known as Molasses) have a long history of use in brewing. Milds, Porters and Stouts can all benefit from the colour and flavours of these dark cane syrups
Traditional Cane Sugars
As well as normal white granulated sugar we, as Sugarcane refiners, are able to offer the full range of brown sugars. Our range spans from the light, dry Golden Granulated sugar to the dark, sticky, liquorice tasting Muscovado, adding unique flavours to any beer.
Unrefined Demerara Sugar from our mill in Belize is particularly suited to giving caramel flavour notes to your product.
Qwik Flo Sugars
Our newest range of sugars. Using an innovative process we are able to make very dry, quick dissolving granules from almost any syrup. Ideal for processes where traditional sugars take too long to dissolve or syrups are difficult to handle. These products are a perfect way of adding Honey or Molasses to your brew in an easy to handle format.
