Maple Grading Sampler
Our 6oz. grading sampler looks just like the official grading kit we use to grade our syrup in the spring. It contains 4 - 1.5oz. bottles of Maple Syrup. One for each grade – a great gift!
What are the different grades of pure maple syrup?
Starting in 2015 Vermont began using a new system for grading maple syrup.
It’s the same great flavor with easier to understand grades.
Light, golden color with a mild, delicate taste. Excellent as a table syrup or
over ice cream or yogurt.
A light amber color and full-bodied flavor, this class of syrup is the product
of choice for consumers who desire the classic maple syrup flavor.
A dark amber color with a more pronounced maple flavor, this class will
satisfy those consumers who desire the strong flavors of what has been
known as Dark Amber.
Nearly black, this syrup has a strong flavor that translates well to cooking,
where the maple flavor will carry through to the finished dish.
