Maple Syrup is often known as the most Canadian product, it’s the product that we all adore on pancakes to salmon and we can easily find in tourist shops across the country. Many of us have even had the opportunity to roll the little wooden stick on snow for the tasty treat.
Wabanaki Maple x Love for Local (Eng) from BrainWorks Marketing
For many years, long before sugar came with the fur trade, the Indigenous Peoples of the First Nations harvested the savoury sap from the maple trees of Canada.
The tales of this savoury sap, with its sweet and woody flavour, travelled the world and so came the name 'maple syrup.' The tradition was passed from generation to generation, and as the maple moon rose each Spring, the harvest of nature's rich tree sap began.
With healing and nourishing powers, maple syrup has been cherished by First Nations Peoples for centuries. It was one of many gifts shared with early settlers, helping them to survive harsh winters and share in our land's bounty.
Today, we have created a twist on a traditional culture with our signature line of Barrel Aged Maple Syrup products of bourbon, whiskey and toasted oak.
Harvested, boiled, and refined with techniques dating back generations, our barrel-aged maple syrup is a taste of our land's cultural fabric.
