Frequently Asked Questions

Maple Syrup

Why is single source maple syrup so important?

Maple syrup comes from maple trees, the sap produced by these trees vary according to the soil, terrain, weather and harvest time as well as syrup making process. Maple syrup is therefore unique with each batch and producer, with a specific taste and texture.

Mixing or blending maple syrup from different producers dilutes that very special character that each producer has worked so hard to refine.

How is it made?

In short, maple syrup is produced from the sap of maple trees which is harvested between February and April. The harvested sap is evaporated in a ‘sugar house’ until the wanted viscosity is reached and then bottled.

Check out the ‘Hand Crafted’ page which attempts to convey in more detail the dedication and hard work that goes into every bottle of this natural elixir.

How do I store Maple Syrup after opening?

Once opened, Maple Syrup should be stored in the fridge and keeps for many months. For long term storage (really?!), the Vermont Sugar Makers Association says that maple syrup retains its flavor best when kept in the freezer (it will not freeze solid).

Maple Cream should always be kept in cool and dark place. Separation of some syrup in the cream is natural, just stir before each use. You can also freeze it.

Maple Sugar can be kept in a cool and dry place.[
