“KITCHEN GOURMET” – Runamok Pure Infused Maple Syrup

Mar 07, 2019
Runamok Maple is a Vermont-based maker of organic infused, barrel-aged, and smoked maple syrups, It all starts with healthy trees, grown in clean air, fed by mountain water.

Runamok starts with its best organic maple syrup and infuses it with the finest organic ingredients. Each one is entirely unique, and the result of an obsession with quality. In sweet or savory dishes, the culinary potential is limitless. From the delicate and addictive Makrut Lime-Leaf to the ever-popular Cinnamon + Vanilla, each one is entirely unique.

Runamok offers a tasty line of barrel-aged maple syrups, including Bourbon, Whiskey, and Rum Barrel-Aged Syrups. With these barrel-aged syrups Runamok takes recently emptied barrels from local distillers and pours in its best maple syrup. Then each barrel ages for up to a year, allowing the spirit to impart its signature flavor without any alcohol. The result is a combination that is unfathomably good.

Runamok also offers an extensive and unique variety of organic pure, infused barrel aged + smoked maple syrups, including Ginger Root, Makrut Lime-Leaf, Hibiscus Flower, Elderberry, Cinnamon + Vanilla, Merquen, Cardamom, Jasmine Tea, and Smoked with Pecan Wood. These Sugarmaker’s Cut: the season’s very best maple syrups, are extraordinary. Each run is tasted and when each flavor is at its peak the Runamok sugarmaker sets it aside with a note: ‘Reserve for Sugarmaker’s Cut’.

Runamok is obsessed with quality. From its unique, utterly delicious Sugarmaker’s Cut™, which is the season’s best pure maple syrup, to its selection of infused, barrel-aged and smoked maple syrups, everything offered is completely organic and created in small batches with the absolute best ingredients.
