Poseidon: Rum Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup



Rum Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup

After tasting how incredible the bourbon barrel-aged was, we had to try aging some syrup in a rum barrel. Soaked in Vermont’s Mad River Distillery barrels for several months it transforms ordinary syrup into extraordinary! There is no alcohol in the syrup. It just has a great, smooth taste of rum!  WytchWood syrup comes from maple trees grown in central Vermont. Hand wax-sealed and blessed, this is unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan celebration or folklore icon.


Poseidon is the Olympian god of the sea, earthquakes, floods, drought and horses. One of the Twelve Olympians, he was also feared as the provoker of earthquakes and worshipped as the creator of the horse. The trident-bearing god had a role as a protector, particularly to mariners, and as the patron of horses and horse breeding. He is also called the "tamer of horses", as he created the first horse from the crests of the waves. He was often revered as a hot-blooded deity, but if Poseidon was pleased, he would bless sailors with a safe voyage in the sea, make the agricultural lands fertile, provide abundant supply of freshwater or would allow trade to flour. Poseidon had many disputes with both gods and men, most famously with Athena and Odysseus. Poseidon was the child of Kronos and Rhea, and brother to Zeus and Hades. What better flavor for this seafaring god than rum?

This syrup is great on or with:

Glazes, raisin swirl cinnamon french toast, dressings, BBQ, Pancakes, granola, fresh fruit, coffee, desserts, ice cream, yogurt, cocktails.

Love it

Love the flavor of Poseidon. The rum taste is perfect

Awesome stuff

Smells just like a bottle of quality spiced rum. The flavor is more subtle which is good, just enough to have the flavor just right


Absolutely amazing. Very rum forward.

Also I'm pretty sure there's actual witchcraft afoot because I actually made pancakes tonight and used it (for like the 5th time) and then got a notification to review it 🙃

Poseiden flooded my tastebuds with flavor...

In my seafaring days as a pirate, the great Poseiden would test our limits on the oceans, but a good barrel of rum would quash our fears and we'd be able to brave his mighty brawn!
LOL! I only WISH I were a pirate! Yo-ho-ho... this rum barrel infused syrup is the booty I would have loved to capture on any sea adventures! I tried this and felt like Poseiden knocked me over with a wave! The burst of rum is not subtle, but not overpowering either. I didn't expect the rum flavor to be as prominent as it was, and it IS swimmingly delightful! It pairs wonderfully with food/drink containing dark chocolate. It's a pairing that is a MUST try! Drooling...
Oh, and please don't think the rum in this syrup will make you curse like a sailor...the sweet taste makes your mouth so jovial, your words come out gushingly sugary!! Raising my trident to you, Wytchwood!

Like the others

It's delicious and decadent in a cream cheese frosting for carrot cake or pumpkin spice cake! I even went as far as to put it in my chia tea instead of honey, OMG new level of tea sweetener unlocked. 🤤😋


Rum is always my choice of drink, and this syrup infused with rum is to die for. It has a perfect blend not only for you standard waffles, French toast, etc, but goes exceptionally well with tea and coffee! Our household loves everything WytchWoods crafts!

Super yummy!

I have tasted a lot of rums and maple syrups, this is a great combination. I am trying to figure out what to make first with this. I made French toast to try it out. Now holiday baking is coming up and this will be there for flavor! Rum balls, cookies, cakes, and more! Oooh, I will have to buy more soon!
