Sortilege Maple Creme is Canada’s best selling maple spirit.
Sortilège is derived from an authentic recipe developed by the descendants of the first settlers of Quebec who brought Whisky making techniques to the New World and added a local native ingredient, maple syrup, to create a new and unique blended Spirit. A true expression of the rugged Canadian landscape, Sortilege follows a traditional recipe that strikes the perfect balance between the strength of Canadian Rye Whisky and the rich, golden flavours of pure Quebec Maple Syrup. Sortilege, our authentic Spirit.
The magnificent Quebec Sugar Maple is the source of the sap which is converted to Maple Syrup. Only trees with a trunk diameter of 30 cm can be “tapped” for making Maple Syrup. It takes a minimum of 30 years for a Maple tree to grow to that size. Traditionally, Sugar bush operators collected the sap buckets by hand and horse-drawn sleigh to get the sap to the Sugar Shack. Our maple season lasts from mid-March to mid-April, during the thawing of the ground after winter, but before the buds come out on the maple trees. A good maple season has warm days, but nights below freezing point. Maple sap doesn’t run during the night.
We express our craft as Distillers by producing a Spirit that is well-known across the globe; Whisky. But not just any Whisky, Canadian Whisky, a masterpiece of blending expertise and unique aging, true craftsmanship in action—distilled by impassioned people who take genuine pride in creating what they believe to be the world’s best Whisky. All our ingredients are exclusively 100% Canadian sourced, quality rye, corn, and water from pristine aquifers.
