Bourbon Barrel- Aged Maple Syrup
WytchWood syrup starts with the sap from maple trees grown in central Vermont. It is then boiled and cooled to soak in American White Oak barrels for several months to create our bottle of maple magick. Allow the distinctive aromas of bourbon to come alive with creamy vanilla, smoky oak and butterscotch to take your maple syrup experience to another level. It contains no alcohol. 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.
Our Bourbon Barrel- Aged flavor is celebrated with Odin, the Allfather of the Aesir Gods, highest of the Norse Gods and father of all men. He is also known by other names across Northern Europe, such as Woden in Old English where he gave his name to Wednesday, or Woden’s Day.
Odin spent nine nights hanging from the world tree Yggdrasil with a spear thrust through him in order to gain the wisdom of the runes, something he learned when he sacrificed his eye into Mimir’s Well to gain this knowledge regarding the Blót (Ritual Offering/Sacrifice). He also learned Seiðr Magic from the Goddess Freya.
His Valkyries take those slain in battle to the Halls of Valhalla.
Like our Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup, Odin represents royalty, wisdom and sorcery; amongst other things.
This syrup is great on or with:
Glazes, BBQ, Pancakes, granola, fresh fruit, coffee desserts, ice cream, yogurt, cocktails.
Kitchen Witch Recommendations:
For grill witches, brush on the Odin syrup during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Grill mats or aluminum foil is highly recommended for easier cleanup. If you prefer to use a smoker, add a basting to during the last 30 minutes.
Non-Alcoholic Bourbon Soda use 12oz of club soda & 2-3 teaspoons of Odin on ice.
This one has been quite a tasty addition in meat glazes and BBQ sauces. We've also used it on pancakes, mixed into baked goods like muffins, or in a cup of morning coffee! The best part of waking up, is Odin in your cup (specifically on Wednesdays.) XD
This syrup is so tasty! And I love supporting small businesses with good people. Will definitely be ordering in the future.
I purchased multiple syrups and some other products. They’re all wonderfully packaged and high quality. The most delicious syrups I’ve had, and I love the unique flavor options.
Odin is one of my favorite gods from the Norse pantheon and I love bourbon-barrel flavor in my sweets so of course I had to give this a try! Tried it first in coffee and you immediately get a bang of bourbon off it, although it is not overpowering and is definitely subtle. Tried it next on some stuffed French toast and it was the perfectly elevated companion to the sweet and creamy filling. I think this is a beautiful tribute to the Allfather, and he would thoroughly enjoy it. I CANNOT wait to use this in Nawlins-style bread pudding - there is no way to go wrong with that combo!
I absolutely LOVE the flavor of this Bourbon Barrel-Aged syrup! This is what I go to for a special little treat. This is part of my "self-care" these days!
This is syrup is so yummy. It is a nice twist to a traditional maple syrup.
The packages were thoughtfully and ethically wrapped. The gifts in the Hekate box were amazing and I can’t wait to start using the syrup. It will be hard not to have the whole bottle at once!
In my years of running distance, I have tired of pasta and have moved to pancakes and waffles for my pre and post run snacks. The flavor of Odin is not overpowering yet it so full of flavor. Please don't let the amazing bourbon barrel smell turn you away - it just adds to the full experience when you open the bottle. Highly recommend if you're looking for a not too sweet syrup with rich taste. (Can't wait to mix in post- race cocktails!)
Literally the ONLY reason I’m giving this 4 instead of 5 stars is because I’m not an alcohol person. I wasn’t born with the appreciation of wine and spirits. HOWEVER, I took a chance on this and I will admit that it is so satisfying. It’s not too harsh for my palette and strong enough for any bourbon aficionado to love. I had it on a Belgian waffle with bananas and whipped cream!
