The production process from our trees to your table

This is why an experienced master sugar maker and a skilled team control and ensure the production and standardization of our syrup. They pay attention to detail and are very concerned with the specific needs of each customer. This ensures that we always provide you with consistent top-quality syrup, year after year.
- Maple sap is collected over a period of about 30 days, depending on seasonal temperature variations.
- On average, maple sap contains ± 2.5 degrees Brix of sugar
- To produce maple syrup, maple sap is evaporated. Maple sap is ready when it reaches 66 degrees Brix.
- The production of one gallon of maple syrup requires ± 40 gallons of maple sap, so a ratio of ± 40 to 1.
- To produce other maple products such as butter, taffy, soft or hard sugar and crystallized sugar; the sugar maker boils the syrup until it reaches the temperature required for the production of each of these products.
- Maple syrup must be bottled when hot at a temperature above 180 ° F. Each container is filled, sealed and placed in a horizontal position to allow the hot liquid to sterilize the cap and neck of the bottle.
- The variation in the colour and taste of the syrup is a natural phenomenon. These variations occur within the season and from one year to another because of the natural composition of the sap. The heat treatment and the type of equipment used during the transformation process also influence the colour and taste of the syrup.
- The syrup produced with the maple sap collected at the beginning of the season is generally clearer with a lighter taste. As the season goes by, the syrup becomes darker with more caramelized flavours.
