Established in 2008, KOVAL produces organic whiskey, liqueurs and specialty spirits in Chicago's first distillery since prohibition. Founders Robert and Sonat Birnecker, chose to leave their academic careers to bring the distilling traditions of Robert's Austrian family to America. When Tim called and talked with Distiller Mark DeSimone to bounce the idea of crafting a KOVAL whiskey barrel aged maple syrup, Mark said he loved the idea and will run it by Robert. Tim received a callback within 5 minutes from Mark saying…."Let's do this….how many barrels would you like?".
This Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup is a golden collaboration between Breckenridge Distillery and Burton's Maplewood Farm. When Tim Burton was introduced to "Booze Hustler", Kevin "Litch" Polich, at the 2011 Gourmet on Gore food event in Vail, CO. he knew there was something special that would develop from this friendship. Tim asked Litch if he'd be interested in creating a Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup for future visits to the Rockies? Litch immediately said yes and two Breckenridge Distillery Barrels were on the way to Tim's farm located in the southern hills of Indiana. Now you can enjoy this "Golden" elixir yourself for Breakfast, in a Cocktail or for Braising Salmon, Steak, Pork or Chicken on the grill.
This Artisan Rum Barrel Aged Maple Syrup has been aged in 14 year old Tennessee Rum Kegs from Prichard's Distillery. These kegs have been hand picked, hot packed & bottled by Tim Burton to ensure the highest most consistent Barrel flavor. Our Maple Barrel Aged Syrup has light buttery rum notes that greet the back palette with a nice maple finish. This unique elixir adds a great finished flavor to many savory & pastry dishes.

High West Distillery and Saloon started with one man's passion to make a great Rocky Mountain Whiskey. Proprietor and distiller David Perkins married his background as a biochemist, his love of bourbon and cooking, and his passion for the American West to bring the craft of small-batch distilling back to Utah, of all places. So, when Tim Burton called David and pitched the idea of aging his award winning Maple Syrup into Davids award winning Whiskey Barrels, David immediately said "I'm all in!". Now you have the chance to taste the best of both worlds…Enjoy!
