Our Whiskey Barrel-Aged Hickory Syrup is made using a historic farm recipe. First we sustainably forage bark from hickory trees, then roast the bark to extract a "tea," then mix with organic rye whiskey, and finally boil it into syrup. We age the syrup in real whiskey barrels, resulting in a smoky, dark & oaken flavor.
What's Hickory Syrup? Well, historically it's known as "All Season Syrup" since farmers made it during the months when Maple sap wasn't flowing. Unlike Maple Syrup (which is made from sap,) Hickory Syrup is made from the bark. Our artisans sustainably harvest Shag Hickory bark, clean it, roast it, and use it to brew a condensed "tea." Then pure turbinado is added during the cooking process.
The result is an amazingly complex, spicy & earthy syrup with amazing depth...which isn't just for pancakes and waffles. Try it on sweet potatoes. Or in baked goods. Or as a glaze for pork or chicken.
