Unlike other Grade A syrups, which can often come across too delicate for full-fledged maple lovers like us, this one�winner of a 2020 Good Food Award�is incredibly rich and complex. That�s because it�s aged in rye whiskey barrels, which impart the spirit�s distinctive spicy, warming taste into the syrup to further bring out its maple flavor. The result is an amber wonder�bold butterscotch notes at the fore followed by soft, warm spice and caramelized sugar undertones. It�s not boozy and smoky as you might expect, but rather rounded, earthy and complex. Like a fine wine, the syrup�s flavor blooms the longer it sits on your tongue.

New York, U.S.A.[/accordions-break]After 14 years of making small batches of maple syrup to share with family and friends, Dana and Laura Putnam decided to make it their full-time gig�relying on Dana�s knowledge as a fourth-generation sugarer.[/banner_heading]Now, the pair crafts maple syrup in small batches in their own sugarhouse just using just the sap from the trees around their Hudson Valley, New York farm, including this award-winning syrup in collaboration with local Orange County Distillery. The distillery produces all of its spirits within its 1600 square-foot barn and the syrup is aged in the barrels used to make their rye whiskey, infusing a rich, spicy taste into the already delectable maple syrup.[/banner-text-break]Go beyond just pancakes and waffles with this syrup (although a stack will of course benefit from a drizzle of the stuff). Drizzle it over smoky grilled salmon or roasted veggies like Brussels sprouts, butternut squash and baked onions. Add a glug to a vinaigrette with cider vinegar, dijon mustard and your favorite nut oil like walnut or pecan. Add to a cheese board, a candied nut recipe, or even a cocktail like an Old Fashioned. And the way the barrel aging process coaxes out notes of butterscotch in the syrup makes it a knockout when used to finish sweets and treats. Pour over creamy mounds of vanilla ice cream, a slice of cheesecake or fresh fruit and whipped cream.[/how-to-use-break]�
