The Dorset Maple Reserve is a pristine 500 acre sugar maple forest located in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont in the small town of Dorset. With over 40,000 sugar maples this magnificent wood produces thousands of gallons of the finest gourmet quality maple syrup. Responsibility for the exquisite flavor of the Reserve's golden nectar is credited to the land's limestone based soils that deliver high calcium content water to the undisturbed maple forest. The flavor enhancing calcium softens taste and provides the discerning pallet with a remarkable maple treat that is unforgettable.
Vermont's #1 Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup
After our maple production season, the Dorset Maple Reserve hand selects specific batches of Rich Amber maple syrup that meet our highest standards and ages them in used bourbon barrels. The barrels are hot filled to help draw out the flavor compounds stored in the wood. Then throughout aging process, the flavor compounds are infused into the maple syrup adding hints of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, spice and most importantly Bourbon!!
