Billington's unrefined gourmet sugars are now available again in North America. For centuries, Billington's Unrefined Natural Cane Sugars have been produced and packed on the island of Mauritius with the same care normally reserved for the finest wines. Recently, the 27-mile long island in the southern Indian Ocean suffered a long tropical cyclone season, which caused serious damage to the sugar cane crop. Mauritius has since recovered and the artisanal sugar mills are again producing a range of high quality unrefined sugars, proclaimed by many as the best sugars in the world!
Simply stated, Billington’s Unrefined Gourmet Sugars are unlike any sugar you will ever taste.
Produced naturally on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Billington’s sugars bring centuries of tradition into each sparking crystal.
Mauritius has a unique combination of climate, soil conditions and tropical sun that is perfectly suited to growing sugar cane unmatched in quality.
Within just 24 hours of harvesting, the cane is crushed and the sweet juices are collected, clarified to remove impurities, evaporated and crystallized. It’s really that simple.
The secret to Billington’s remarkable flavor is in the molasses: unlike some other sugars on the market, Billington’s sugars still hold a bit of the cane’s natural molasses within each glistening crystal.
The Billington's packages have been completely redesigned and are now available in bag-in-box packaging with a gourmet slant and tropical influence. The new inner lining is heat sealed and designed to keep the sugars fresh, soft and moist.
