Just in time for Valentines Day, we introduce to you our Rose & Cardamom flavor as the Greek Goddess of Beauty, Love & Eternal Youth - Aphrodite!
Aphrodite, ancient Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty, identified with Venus by the Romans. The Greek word aphros means “foam,” and Hesiod relates in his Theogony that Aphrodite was born from the white foam produced by the severed genitals of the Titan Uranus, after his son Cronus threw them into the sea.
Aphrodite was, in fact, widely worshipped as a goddess of the sea and of seafaring; she was also honored as a goddess of war, especially at Sparta, Thebes, Cyprus, and other places. However, she was known primarily as a goddess of love and fertility and even occasionally presided over marriage.
This syrup is great on or with:
Baked goods, pancakes, tea, waffles, granola, on desserts, ice cream, yogurt & in cocktails.
WytchWood syrup starts with the sap from maple trees grown in central Vermont. The sap is then boiled in the Spring and infused to create a delicious rose from Europe and exotic cardamom. Each bottle is hand wax-sealed, blessed and unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan Sabbath or Folklore Icon. They are designed as libations but can be used for anything Kitchen Witch related as well.
The price of this syrup is slightly higher due to the nature of ingredients used and sourcing them from Europe.
First of all I looove the packaging and Goddess names on the products. The Aphrodite maple syrup is yummy and I can definitely taste the rose and cardamom just right and not over powering. I’m excited to use the syrup on other things aside from pancakes, waffles and fruits.
Love all of your syrups. This one was delicious with chocolate chip, strawberry pancakes.
I love this syrup so very much! It is such a unique flavor and so well done. None of the components overpower the others and you can clearly taste the maple, rose, and spice all in one go. I absolutely adore the flavor of rose and this does not disappoint at all. I've used it in cocktails as well as on pancakes and both are equally delicious :) On a side note, the people at WytchWood are so helpful and sweet and really care about their customers. Would definitely recommend!
