In order to frame this article, I want to help you understand how exceptional this project really is.  First, the maple syrup:  The Bissell’s produce what we call “Sugarmaker’s Reserve” at the peak of the maple syrup season.

This is a very specific window when the Red Maple and Sugar Maple trees are producing pristine sap in equal amounts.  The maple syrup produced from this sap has a unique reddish hue, uncommon in the maple syrup industry.  And the flavor is just exquisite.  There is a limited amount that is produced every maple season.  Thus, the name Sugarmaker’s Reserve.

So I’ll ask again, what is better than bourbon barrel aged maple syrup?  The Bissell family’s Sugarmaker’s Reserve aged in a 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle barrels.  The collaboration between these two families combines the best of both worlds – exceptional products and rich history.   This maple syrup is as amazing as it sounds.  The maple syrup distinctly carries the character of the 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.  And quite possibly, could be the rarest maple syrup on the planet.

A limited release will be available this June at:

  1. Do you sell raw tree sap? If not do you have any idea where I could find some?

  2. Karen,

    We do sell some raw sap in-season. However, we will not have any additional sap until March.

  3. Hey nate, wanted to let you know that the red hue you talk of is because of the soil type that your trees grow in. I have that same red hue here in New Hampshire.
