Maple Craft Foods


Maple Craft Foods is committed to reducing their carbon footprint. Maple Craft Foods’ unique partnership with the Litchfield Distillery enables them to produce award-winning products, while minimizing their environmental impact.

Maple Craft Foods gets their barrels locally, within hours of being dumped, enabling them to fill them with maple syrup immediately while the wood is still soaked with award-winning bourbon. They return the barrels to the distillery after aging their maple syrup, so they can refill them with bourbon to make their amazing maple flavored bourbon. The cycle begins again, ensuring no natural resources are wasted while making the best tasting products.

They also do not use mass produced maple syrup that is “flash-cooked” using steam in a factory setting. They only use premium, single source, Grade A Dark/Robust maple syrup that is slow-boiled, traditionally, over an open flame on a small family farm in Vermont.
