Bringing the best Maple Products to Chicago

Pure Michigan maple syrup with Chicago Attitude

Pure and Barrel Aged Maple Syrup 

Our Chicago Maple products feature pure maple syrup in addition to syrups aged in bourbon barrels and rum barrels. We also bring that Chicago attitude to our maple syrup through our partnership with Revolution Brewing. We age our syrup in bourbon barrels that previously aged their Straight Jacket, Deep Wood and Deth’s Tar beers.

A true family business

We started Chicago Maple in 2018 after Jared Hunt and Scott Friske purchased Mackinac Bluffs Maple Farms from Jared’s Dad Lindy, Aunt Lynelle and Uncle Luke. Jared, Scott and their wives have lived in the Chicagoland area for over a decade, and as Michiganders-turned-Chicagoans, we saw a need for a local maple presence in the Chicagoland area.

We could not find a single maple company with local roots, so we worked with our family to create Chicago Maple as a way to bring our Organic Maple Farm to the Windy City!

Our company is a true family business. Derek & Justin Friske, Scott’s younger brothers, manage the business operations in Chicago, including sales, partnerships, logistics and customer service.

Chicago Community

We commit a portion of our crop each year as donations to support local community causes throughout the Chicagoland community.

If you have a pancake breakfast to benefit servicewomen and servicemen, a school fundraiser or another cause…we would love to hear about it!

Please contact us so we can learn how we can help.
