Knotted Maple

Knotted Maple, distilled in small batches, is a hand-crafted maple spirit that is smooth, not sweet. Made from Maine maple syrup, it has a distinctive taste that embodies the essence of New England. Enjoy it straight or in any drink where you would use fine rum.

Drink Recipes

We believe that our Knotted Maple is best straight up in a brandy glass, without ice. Others prefer it with ice and there are people who believe the ice and resulting small amount of water bring out more flavor. Regardless, we think you’ll agree that the mellow maple flavor combined with the alcohol creates a unique taste sensation.

The following recipes are tasty as well:
