Excellent flavour that goes with anything

Tastes just like real chocolate and you only use a few drops. Makes icing cupcakes so much more fun as you can colour it any colour and still have chocolate flavour. It makes the mind confused. Live it.

Such a natural flavour

Ive been using Uncle Roys flavourings for many years now, and after grabbing a different one when I couldn't find the same flavour here, I now remember why. This time I ordered mango and raspberry flavours, to make buttercream for pairing with chocolate cake, and both are equally delicious. The flavours are fruity without being overpowering and chemical tasting. For a full 250g/500g batch of butter and icing sugar, I needed just 8 drops to get a nice rounded mango flavour. The only thing Id go for if it was available, would be a small size again, which would allow me to buy more variations/flavours as most of mine that I have here (23 flavours so far) use so little to make a good flavour that Im fearful of wasting the rest. Luckily they do have a long BB4 date and I have one flavour (cherry) that despite being well over the bb4 date, still tastes exactly the same.

Excellent Product & Excellent Service

These sugared violets are brilliant. I have bought them before and love them. They are so decorative and taste great too. Thank you

Excellent quality

These sugared small whole roses are delicious to look at and to eat. I have ordered the petals before, so am familiar with Uncle Roy's products which are of excellent quality.

Uncle Roys bent over backwards to get the product to us promptly, which was really appreciated. We used half the recommended addition rate and got a pleasant flavour which has mellowed in cask. Would recommend and use again.

I've been trying to replicate a chocalate-mint drink I'd had long ago, and after years of looking I'm happy to report that with this chocolate essence my search is over. I plan to continue to stock this in my pantry until I no longer like chocolate, a day which will likely never come.

Good flavour

Uncle Roy's Blog




We have started to shape up the website to make it easier to navigate.

But its always useful to hear if there is anything you would like to see on here or anything that would make your shopping easier?



Over the last 15 mon­­­th's Uncle Roy’s has undergone huge cha­n­g­es as we moved our production centre to Ayrshire, Rebran­ded and added new Ra­ng­es to our offer­ing with many of the products now sporting their new labelling and better shelf appeal for the retailers. 


We have some exciting new products coming your way! We also have new labels for the rest of our range coming soon! 

In order to tidy up the website a bit we are moving some of the products around so they are in more appropriate categories, bear with us while we move things around, some things may disappear only to reappear somewhere else. 

If you are having trouble finding your favourite products don't hesitate to give us a call on (UK) 01292 263 583


Our new premises is now fully SALSA Certified! We have a copy of the certificate available on the website and on request by clicking here


We have some more amazing new products coming your way!


We have been busy making all kinds of improvements and changes to our range behind the scenes and now its time to show you some of them!

New Label Flier


Our move has now happened  and we are getting back to normal - sorry for any slight delays !!!!!!


Uncle Roy's production is soon moving to bigger premises nearby in Ayr but no other changes apart from some new faces!!


Our Vanilla Essence is now alcohol-free



Got visitors? Bought the cheapest bubbly you could find? Poured and tasted it? mmmm a bit flat - no real depth of flavour. Shame!!.... but wait I wonder what it would taste like with a few drops ( That's all you need!) of Uncle Roys Blackberry Essence? Well blow me down with a feather -a sophisticated Adult-only indulgence with an edge on the decadent..........other words bloody good.

Thank you Uncle Roy for throwing the rocks away, ditching the Deli and doing what you were meant to do!!


A very satisfied customer who has to travel to Oban from Muasdale to get your products!

 Now where did I put that cheap be continued!
