The Canadian Birch Company (Grand Marais)

We all know the Canadian stereotype that we LOVE maple syrup – and they’re not wrong. But even syrup needs some variety. Enter The Canadian Birch Company. Producers of premium Birch Syrup, The Canadian Birch Company offers products that will satisfy all pallets.

To describe the taste could not be said any better than the creators themselves. “Birch has a BIG taste. There is no other way to describe the luscious, compelling taste of Birch. It is sweet but not overly so. It is fruity but yet toffee-like. It has overtones of molasses & brown sugar, citrus undertones, and a tangy finish that is not unlike a balsamic reduction. Think sweet and sour and how compelling that is in terms of leaving your palette wanting more. This is the magic of Birch!”

Offering three crafts of different grades of Birch Syrup, whatever taste you’re in the mood for, you can experience it like never before. Gold is a premium quality, light in colour, with smooth notes of sweet toffee and brown sugar. Amber is a brilliant red colour, robust, less sweet, but has intense fruitiness. Dark is rich deep brown in colour, smooth, with a balsamic and earthy taste.

They also offer various toffee sauces, jams, and even tips and recipes perfect for including with their products. If you’re looking for that perfect Christmas gift, take a look at their Gift Page.

All of The Canadian Birch Company’s products can be ordered online and shipped.
