This is why I love crowdfunding.
We love maple syrup. We put it on everything. With pancakes, in our coffee, on our pizza. We put some in our hair when we’ve had a rough week. If you’ve had the chance to taste real maple syrup you know exactly what we are talking about. But that wasn’t enough for us. We wanted to make it better and started experimenting with infusing fresh berries handpicked from our family farm. What resulted blew us away! Our syrups exploded with rich, complex flavors that took the deliciousness that is maple syrup to a whole new level.
It is just 9 AM local time and I am all hyped up about maple syrup due to this impassioned pitch by Maple Farms in Lake Placid, New York. They’ve launched a Kickstarter for a variety of infused syrups, and to be fair fruit syrups are pretty standard. The liquor-infused ones caught my eye. They’re taking preorders for syrups infused with amaretto, spiced rum, irish cream, bourbon and brandy just to name a few. Don’t think they just toss some liquor in their syrup and ship it off. They actually age the syrup in the barrels for 4-6 months to impart the flavor.
They say you can use these to make “It’s 5 O’clock somewhere waffles.” Hilarious. Did I mention I love crowdfunding?
Our line of Liquor Maple Syrups are actually reverse infused, by barrel aging our 100% pure Adirondack Medium Amber syrup in oak casks previously used by some of the region’s most award winning small batch distillers including Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Finger Lakes Distillery, & New England Distilling. We’ve also mixed it up a bit and threw in some underground favorites like New Deal Distilling and Rogue Farms & Spirits.
You can preorder a 12.5 oz bottle for $25.
