About Runamok Maple Syrups

Runamok Maple is located in northern Vermont, along the western slopes of Mount Mansfield. Spanning 1,100 acres in Cambridge and 250 acres in Fairfield, our crew taps 81,000 trees to bring you one of Mother Nature’s most exquisite pleasures: pure maple syrup.

Throughout the sugaring season, the flavor of the syrup varies due to temperature, moisture and acts of nature that remain a mystery even to the experts. As it changes, we constantly taste it until we hit the absolute peak of flavor. Since this is the syrup we bottle for ourselves, we call it The Sugarmaker’s Cut.

Along with our pure maple syrup, we have created a collection of infusedsmoked and barrel-aged maple syrups. Maple marries exceptionally well with a variety of flavors. Some of them are tried and true like cinnamon and vanilla and some are unexpectedly out of this world, like our original Makrut lime-leaf.


What We Thought

Until I was a teenager I had never experienced Elderberry at all. On a trip to West Virginia we were introduced to elderberry jelly on biscuits and toast. I was in love. Ever since I have loved the flavor and while in some cultures it is known as “poor mans jelly” I found that I loved it and was really drawn to the flavor.

These days it seems to be everywhere and used in wellness practices to ward off sickness which we can’t do enough of during the intense flu season that just seems to not end this year.

Maple syrup infused with my favorite berry is definitely the way to go. A thick stack of pancakes smothered in syrup with a little bit of butter is my dream breakfast and Runamok made those dreams come true. A plate of pure heaven.


The first flavor across your tongue may be somewhat woodsy with a finish of wild berries.  Then you realize this syrup tastes exactly like figs – or rather, figs drizzled in maple. 

A unique and delicious concoction, this syrup is wonderful on pancakes.


This syrup is $16.95 per bottle and worth absolutely every penny. Just think that Mother’s Day is well on its way and what better way to spoil Mom than a nice breakfast? Perhaps you would even serve it to her in bed? (HINT)
