Maple Sugar, Syrup
Maple syrup usually comes in three or four different types, from light through dark. See below for more information!
Sorry, we currently have no available products here.
Maple syrup is made by boiling down the sap of the sugar maple tree. It takes more than 20 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of syrup.
As a rule, the lighter syrup is also the lightest in flavour, while the flavour increases with amber (or medium) and darkest. Generally, as the weather becomes warmer, the sap of the tree becomes darker, and the flavour deepens.
Lighter syrup is used 'straight' for pancake syrup etc., while the stronger syrup can be used in cooking, or in our case, to produce the most flavourful maple liquor and liqueur!
Maple syrup makes a lovely liqueur when mixed with plain vodka, moonshine or grain alcohol. Depending on your sweet tooth, mix up to 1/3 syrup to 2/3 alcohol...use less syrup if you don't want it so sweet!
