Bissell to Introduce Pappy & Company Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup at Summer Fancy Foods Show

The new product is created by aging Bissell’s top-quality Sugarmaker’s Reserve™ syrup in rare, 23 year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The result is a smooth and delicious limited edition Pappy & Company Bourbon Barrel-Aged Pure Maple Syrup.

Bissell Maple Farm starts with sap produced at the peak of the maple harvesting season, during a very specific window when the Red Maple and Sugar Maple trees are producing a limited quantity of pristine sap in equal amounts. The Sugarmaker’s Reserve syrup produced from this sap is then aged 100 days in barrels that have been used for years to distill Pappy Van Winkle bourbon whiskey in Frankfort, Kentucky.

According to Pappy & Company’s Carrie Van Winkle Greener, “We only work with other companies who share our same vision and commitment to quality over quantity. So working with Nate Bissell and Bissell Maple Farm came naturally.”

Adds Louise Van Winkle Breen, “There are other barrel aged syrups out there, but to know the story behind this syrup, it being the best quality possible combined with the most iconic bourbon brand of our time, we know we have something rare and very special to offer.”

The new maple syrup offers a smoky, smooth finish that transcends pancakes and waffles—it can be drizzled over ice cream, basted on pork tenderloin, glazed on strawberries, and more.

Says Nate Bissell, “You might think you know these flavors—the bourbon, the maple. They’re really ‘of the moment’ right now with kitchens and chefs…but you really can’t know the richness and depth of flavor until you’ve tasted our Sugarmaker’s Reserve syrup that’s been aged in a 23-year-old barrel from the most exclusive bourbon available.”
