St Leon’s Maple Syrup is a Single Estate Artisan Organic Maple Syrup that originates from maple trees growing in Val Racine Quebec. The flavor profile of Ste Leon’s Cuvee Renee has been described as having notes of lightly toasted chicory and pure confectioner's sugar, amidst its delicious maple flavor.
St Leon Maple Syrup is owned by partners James Simpkins and Amélie Guay, both accomplished sommeliers who are committed to using traditional time honored techniques and craftsmanship, preferring the low/slow method, to create small batch, truly unique and authentic maple syrup.
Like fine wine and really good chocolate, a maple syrup’s terroir is its very soul. It is what distinguishes it from other maple products. A maple syrup's terroir reflects all of the various elements that combine and result in its unique flavor and nutrient profile. St Leon’s maple trees are located in a pristine forest at one of the highest elevations in Quebec, giving it truly unique terroir.
Health Benefits: A number of studies are coming out showing numerous health benefits to consuming maple syrup such as anti-oxidant compounds as well as never before seen compounds and possible benefits in controlling blood sugar. See here and here.
