Discover what makes the four distinct grades of maple syrup.

  • Golden — delicate taste

Primarily produced from the syrup collected at the very beginning of the season. Recognisable by its light colour and sweet, delicate flavour.

  • Amber — rich taste

Harvested after the golden maple syrup and relatively light in colour. It has a pure, rich taste and is ideal in vinaigrettes or drizzled over sweet and savoury dishes.

  • Dark — robust taste

The most commonly used syrup, harvested after amber maple syrup. Its more pronounced maple flavour is perfect for cooking, desserts and sauces.

  • Very Dark — strong taste

Darker in colour. Rich, distinctive flavour that is more pronounced than that of dark maple syrup. Recommended for sauces and glazes.
