Our most requested maple syrup flavor is finally here!

WytchWood syrup starts with the sap from maple trees grown in Central Vermont. The sap is then boiled in the spring and infused with organic pomegranate puree. A sweet and delightfully fruity syrup. Each bottle is hand wax-sealed, has a gold foil label which is beautifully illustrated by the talented artist Kristopher Martin of Arcane Path. It is then ritually blessed and the taste is unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan celebration, or folklore icon.

Persephone's Story:

The story of Persephone, the sweet daughter of the Goddess Demeter who was kidnapped by Hades and later became the Queen of the Underworld, is known all over the world. The story goes that when Hermes reached the Underworld, he requested that Persephone come back to earth with him to rejoin her mother and father. Hades knew he could not refuse the commands of Zeus, but he also could not part from his beloved Persephone. Before she departed from the Underworld, Hades offered Persephone a pomegranate as a farewell. This was a cunning move by Hades. All the Olympians knew that if anyone ate or drank anything in the Underworld they would be destined to remain there for eternity. Thinking of her mother, Persephone decided to, instead, eat the small seeds of the pomegranate – assuming that these would not count as consumption. Little did Persephone know, this was exactly why Hades had given her the pomegranate. Because Hades had deceivingly tricked the young Persephone into eating the pomegranate, he was commanded to allow Persephone to visit her poor mother above his domain. In return, Zeus promised a binding deal that allowed Hades to have Persephone a month for each seed she had eaten. Thus, for half of each year, Persephone was to sit on the throne of the Underworld beside Hades. During Persephone’s six months on earth reunited with her mother, the land was fertile, beautiful, and warm. The meadows were lush and of the deepest green. The trees were tall, sturdy, and fruitful. The rains came often and drought was unseen. However, when Persephone left the land and entered Hades’ domain, the earth experienced a cold, dark period with no growth. Demeter grieved for her daughter and had little time to nurture the land. It is actually the way of the ancient Greeks to explain the change of the seasons, the eternal cycle of Nature's death and rebirth.

This syrup is great on or with:

By far, my favorite of the syrups I've tried from here. It's definitely not strong on the pomegranate, but there is just that tiny bit of flavor and tartness from it that leaves a nice aftertaste.

Persephone for the Win

What better way for me to do into the fall than with Persephone's syrup. This have me a little twang and it's sooo perfect. I love pomegranates and this satisfies my taste. It's also good on biscuits as well.

A Perfect Blend

Pomegranate is one of my favorite fruits, and having it infused with real maple syrup is on a different level. It was also a perfect way to help celebrate Mabon!

Amazing

I love all things Persephone and pomegranate. I was interested to see how this would turn out since pomegranate infuse stuff can sometimes taste funky. But this is absolutely delicious. I hope they continue this line because I want to be able to buy this as often as possible.

Enticing flavor

It's sweet but slightly savory as well. I love putting it in plain greek yogurt to really taste all the notes of it.

A very sweet and pleasant taste!

Normally when I get Pomegranate anything lately it's way too sweet but this flavor is perfect. I like it best on French toast rather than sweet pancakes or waffles. I haven't yet tried it in my coffee but I definitely will and update my review!
