Organic Maple Syrup
Érablière Escuminac was established in 1998 when Martin Malenfant decided to set up his sugar bush on a century-old maple-growing area of 500 hectares at Escuminac in the Baie-des-Chaleurs in Gaspésie. This land has a particular feature: it also includes one of the finest mature yellow birch forests in Quebec.
Martin Malenfant wanted to produce a high-quality syrup while respecting the environment, working in harmony with nature. Since 1998, he has implemented a strict plan of management of his sugar bush and high standards of production. In 2006, he finally received his organic certification.
Martin Malenfant is a third-generation maple syrup producer. He possesses a unique expertise, boasting more than 35 years of experience in maple syrup production. Martin Malenfant is without a doubt one of the master producers of maple syrup in Québec.
Today, Érablière Escuminac operates 65,000 taps dedicated to organic maple syrup and 5,000 taps for production of organic birch sap.
We carry a line of Escuminac products including:
Extra Rare 50ml, Grade A Pure Organic Maple Syrup - Amber Produced in very small quantities
Escuminac amber, a richly-flavored syrup, is produced in very small quantities, making it rare. Golden in color with bright highlights, it is the finest in our range of products. Produced exclusively with sap harvested during the first days of the sap run, rare Escuminac amber is an exceptional syrup with a smooth, velvety texture. It is light in the mouth, featuring a subtle caramel and honeysuckle bouquet with a hint of cinnamon and a lingering flavor.
Great Harvest 200ml, Grade A Pure Organic Maple Syrup
Escuminac main harvest syrup is the most popular in our range because it is readily available but also because of its complex and mild mouthfeel. This Canada Grade A maple syrup is both extra fine and richly flavored. Its aromatic profile brings to mind warm, buttered brown sugar, date purée, English toffee and green anise with a subtle hint of curry. Flavorful, it isfull-bodied, rounded, textured, distinct and syrupy, but not overwhelming, and has a very long finish. A grand cru!
