Quick Pitch

Simple Syrup is an Essential item to stock in any bar or cafe. 4 Pours is a line of Simple Syrups using Organic Raw Cane Sugar, and the Freshest and Locally Sourced ingredients to naturally infuse our Syrups with flavor.

Our Motto and Mission

At 4 Pours our motto is "Make life Simple." Therefore, it is essential that we provide a product that uses high quality and NATURAL ingredients. 

Our primary focus at 4 Pours is to produce a sweetener that offers a Highly Flavorful and Unique taste experience, unlike any other on the market. Our Simple Syrups can be used in the gourmet COFFEE culture, in BARS and RESTAURANTS and by HOME cooks. Combining the freshest combination of NATURAL ingredients, our product will be attractive to chefs and experimental food blogs. This original idea will give us a crucial advantage over the competition.

How We're Different

Organic Cane Sugar

4 POURS uses a blend of the best-certified Organic Cane Sugar and Pure Extracts, while most simple syrups use processed flavorless white sugar. Compared to white sugar, organic cane sugar has the full-bodied taste of sugarcane and is less processed, retaining a lot of the nutrients present in cane juice. 

TRUST YOUR SOURCE

We utilize company's committed to food safety, quality and sustainability. We use local sources for our fruits and herbs to provide the freshest ingredients possible.

 

NO more boring ugly squeeze bottles of simple syrup at the bar, coffee shop or in your cabinet. 4 Pours not only taste amazing, it comes in a beautiful teardrop shaped bottle that can be used as a home accessory. 

TRENDSETTING

The 4 Pours family consists of 3 Creative Young Professionals with extensive experience in the Bar Scene, Beverage Marketing and Sales, and the Event Production world. The 4 Pours team has a solid grasp on the newest trends and latest culture from living in Manhattan, Williamsburg Brooklyn, and Los Angeles.

4 Pours is NOT Your Average Syrup!

4 Pours offers 8 Unique Flavors of Simple Syrup, and 1 Stevia flavored Simple Syrup for the health conscience consumer. We believe in NO WASTE. We offer 3 different flavored popsicles, which use our delicious remaining fruits and herbs.

Our Story and Family

As you may know, living in NYC is expensive, along with our day jobs, The 4 Pours team have held bartending positions at high-end bars. After creating our own cocktail recipes for years, we asked ourselves... why aren't there better simple syrups used in cocktails?? Yes, I've seen some bars make their own simple syrup out of plain white sugar, and throwing it in an ugly squeeze bottle. Quite the eye sore, and there's no excuse for that! So, we teamed up with mom, who has experience with The French Art of Food Combining and the raw food movement, and we created 4 Pours Simple Syrup. 

4Pours Simple Syrup will revolutionize the beverage/sweetener world!
