Société-Orignal Maple Syrup from Quebec

Flexitarian | | Apr 17, 2014 07:44 AM

I am always looking for the highest quality ingredients and this article in the Globe today caught my eye: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/f...

It's about a coveted Quebec maple syrup from Société-Orignal that I have never heard of. It is extracted extremely carefully with a lower yield rate than typical maple syrup. I usually buy Forbes Wild Food dark amber #3 maple syrup in a 4L jug for about $80-$90 or so at the local farmer's markets (which I split with friends). I like the dark amber because it has a more pronounced and complex maple syrup taste. But, this maple syrup is $35/500ml and available in limited quantities from their website later this month (link in article). That's more than 3X what I usually pay but it sounds very special. It's used in many high-end restaurants.

Has anyone found it at a retailer in Toronto (ie not online from Quebec), tried it and can comment on what they think about it?
