For its Organic Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup, Runamok starts with its best organic maple syrup and ages it in recently emptied Bourbon barrels.
The syrup draws in the essence of the Bourbon, and like premium whiskeys, the process takes time, and careful tending. But the result is a sophisticated duo that is a new classic. This product may contain trace amounts of alcohol up to 1%.

Runamok is a family-owned, Vermont-based company that started with a foundation of premium, organic maple syrup and has expanded to an array of maple and honey-based products.
It was started by husband and wife, Eric and Laura Sorkin, who began tapping their woods for syrup in Cambridge, Vermont in 2009.
They had a vision of elevating maple in new and innovative ways. Their focus
was on creating a truly unique maple syrup product. With elegant packaging, innovative flavor profiles, and the highest quality ingredients, Runamok's infused, smoked and barrel-aged maple syrups have made waves in the food world.
Runamok produces its own own maple syrup at its sugarbushes in Cambridge and Bolton, Vermont, but even with their more than 100,000 taps, the company's maple trees do not make syrup for its needs.
To ensure its high-quality, organic supply, Runamok partners with many other sugarmakers in its area, buying maple syrup from from producers who we know are as passionate about their product and their land. Runamok is proud to support a group of more than 50 family farms and to be part of the greater agricultural community in Vermont.
Runamok not only committed to taking care of the land under its stewardship but to the people who make the company successful. One of its goals from the start was to offer healthcare to all of our employees, including the woods crew who consist of both seasonal and full-time people. In 2019, Runamok proudly started offering high quality, affordable health insurance to all of its employees.
In addition to providing for its employees, founder, Eric Sorkin has been advocating for paid leave with the non-profit organization, Main Street Alliance. The movement aims to promote paid leave for employees to take care of a family member, themselves or a new child.
As Eric testified before a congressional committee, “No one, least of all those in the most precarious financial positions, should have to choose between getting paid and taking care of loved ones or their own health. Likewise, why do we embrace a system where business owners must choose between their own profitability or the wellbeing of their employees?”
Another enormous challenge facing working Vermonters is the availability of child care. With that in mind, Runamok has been working with Let’s Grow Kids to start up a child care facility at its own facility. Its plan is to have the on-site facility open to its employees as well as anyone else in the community. How great would it be to know that your child is being well cared for and engaged in the same building you are working?
Environmental MissionRunamok believes protecting the land is of utmost importance. Both maple and honey are gifts from nature, and it endeavors to show its appreciation by protecting the natural world that is a foundation for each.
