Merquén is a chili blend from the Mapuche region of Chile. The peppers are ripened to a dark red color to develop rich flavor then slow smoked over a fire. When Runamok infuse them in their maple syrup, all of the profiles of the pepper – the heat, the smokiness and the rich pepper taste are magnified by the caramel tones of the maple.
Enjoy with: powerful cheese, bbq, vinaigrettes, roasted vegetables or meats. And just a half teaspoon in a cocktail will give the drink a bit of spice and mystery.
Ingredients: Pure organic maple syrup infused with merquén
