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 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!
Love this so much! It’s been in coffee, tea, on ice cream, on ham, used as a sweetener for breakfasts...
definitely recommend!!! It arrived packed safely and in recycled materials (which I really appreciate). The bottle itself is beautiful. So much info on the Idin and the illustration is amazing.
The bourbon isn’t too strong. It’s a hint but not too weak either. I feel like the Goldilocks of reviews because it’s genuinely just right! I can’t wait to pick up more products! ✨🤍
My syrup arrived promptly in a beautiful brown box and neat packaging tape. Inside there was a coupon for my next purchase and a sticker. My Odin syrup bottle was seal with beautiful wax. I love the story of Odin on the back of the bottle and the labeling is gorgeous! I made some corn fritters and used the syrup for dipping. Damn this syrup is good. You can really taste the bourbon. The bourbon taste isn’t too weak or too strong, it’s perfect! Can’t wait to find new ways to use it. Thanks a bunch! Glad I found you
I've had enough craft beer to be kind of fatigued by the bourbon barrel craze.
But I had never had bourbon barrel maple syrup and let me tell you, this is a whole new thing and it is awesome!
It has a strong, clean bourbon flavor. It is clear that the bourbon barrels used were of high quality. And the grade A maple syrup fleshes it out so nicely: it takes the sharp flavor of the spirit and adds a woody, earthy sweetness that complements it formidably.
Of course this is great on breakfast items and as a roasting glaze. But my favorite way to use this is as a stand-in for simple syrup in an old fashioned with cheap whiskey. It makes the cheap whiskey taste like a good bourbon!
