In the past, every village had its own syrup distillery. For example, in Eijsden (South of Maastricht) there was a syrup distillery which belonged to the Henquet family. The family business Henquet made high-quality rinse apple syrup and sold it in its home store as well as in the region, to various stores.


Traditionally, the rinse apple syrup is a fresh and sour combination of sugar beets and apples. In the past, the recipe used to vary as some of the years there were more apples in the rinse syrup than others. It depended on the harvest.
Nowadays, the recipe is fixed, and it remains the same every year. The old family recipes have been handed over Frumarco, who still uses them to make Henquet’s rinse apple syrup.
Henquet’s rinse apple syrup is available in 450 g and 850 g cups, in a 5kg can and an 11 kg bucket.


Ingredients: sugar beet juice, apple juice, lemon juice, gelling agent: pectin.
