Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Maple Syrup
What you have here is a somewhat adult twist on a breakfast staple. We took Grade ‘A’ Medium Pennsylvania maple syrup and carefully poured it into a used Rye whiskey barrel. The barrels come to us from Cactoctin Creek Distilling Company in northern Virginia.
A whiskey barrel can be used for bourbon only once, by law. This creates a secondary market for the used ones. When we visited Catoctin Creek for a bottling workshop and tour I found myself wondering what else you could use the barrel for, even though they make Rye Whiskey – not bourbon. Clearly I found a use.
A taste of Langdon Wood Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup™ starts off with the expected sweetness and maple flavor, but then that sugar flavor drops off and the warm, dry feeling of a good rye whiskey comes in.
Available in a 12 fl. oz / 355ml or 8 fl. oz / 225ml clear flip-top bottle.
Use it for breakfast, save it for dinner, what ever you like. In fact, if you’re thinking about “Brinner”, you should be thinking about Langdon Wood™.
