Hidden Marsh is one of the newer distilleries in the the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, producing artisanal products on a small scale. They also produce a outstanding vodka made from honey called Bee Vodka and a honey brandy along with an apple brandy and a raspberry liqueur among other products.The Finger Lakes is a well known area for wines and wineries with over 200 at last count. What is much less well known is the proliferation of distilleries in the areas and the production of grape, berry and fruit based spirits along with the more traditional grain based spirits which lends some unique flavors and nuances to their products. Made in a small hybrid column/pot still.

Made from 100% locally sourced New York maple syrup and using the "farm to bottle" green/environmental approach working with local people and resources.

Appearance: Slightly pale gold like of course, maple syrup. Very thin coating on glass. Slowly goes from scalloped edgeline to legs, then droplets.

First Impression: Maple, caramel, hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

Taste: Thick body and entry to it. Nice maple flavor to it without being overdone or tasting sickly sweet.

Drinks: Works well with rum. Swap out orgeat syrup in Tiki drinks for an interesting spin on a cocktail. Could be substituted for St Germain in many drinks calling for it. Also think about using it instead of an Amaretto for a maple rather than almond flavor. Excellent over pastries or ice cream also.

Bottle: Clear glass, cylindrical eau de vie type bottle. Metallic paper label, black plastic neckwrap with pull top cork closure.

Final Thoughts: Nicely done liqueur. A touch pricey compared to some but excellent quality and innovative.

A nicely done website that mostly covers their extensive wine offerings. New website for spirits should be up soon.
