Wabanaki Maple is Indigenous female-owned and located in Neqotkuk (Tobique) First Nation. A twist on traditional maple, we age our maple syrup in previously used bourbon, whiskey, rum and oak barrels. This gives the syrup a warm and sophisticated flavour. Alongside these flavours, we also have traditional maple syrup, maple sugar, barrel aged smoker chips, and curated gift boxes.
Maple syrup is used as an additive to traditional herbal medicines to promote and replenish the body. For centuries, Indigenous Peoples cherished and harvested sap from maple trees across Canada. At Wabanaki Maple, we strive to reconnect people and communities to the traditional history and healing properties of maple syrup while sharing the rich and memorable flavour of our products.
