All Maple Syrups aren't created equal...literally. They're created by the natural minerals, enzymes, sugars and other nutrients in the ground under each tree. All of these contribute to the flavor of a particular syrup. And, in fact, syrup produced from the exact same tree will change in flavor from year-to-year, month-to-month, and even day-to-day. It all depends on the daily needs for that tree...it sends messages down to its roots requesting specific nutrients at different times.
This results in a huge range of flavor differences —from vanilla, caramel, nutmeg, butterscotch, toffee, to citrus, floral, grassy, chocolate and espresso. Which is why each bottle of Beekman Blend Syrup comes with a flavor note code. No, you can't order a specific flavor profile...whatever comes out of the ground is what we work with and offer, fresh from the tree, moment by moment. We believe in living seasonally and appreciating all the differences...and trust us...every batch is amazing in its own way.
