A question for those who buy my bourbon barrel aged maple syrup

Dave Klish

I’ve been doing a lot of business selling my bourbon barrel aged maple syrup, some even buy larger quantities at a time.

I recently got to wondering if there would be enough interest in customers to sell case lots at a slight discount. Is the interest there. At the sugarhouse I’ve sold full cases a few time and twice so far I’ve shipped that amount in one shipment, but I always had to repack those larger shipments in large flat rate USPS boxes. A large flat rate box, will not safely hold a full case worth. I have a reseller who is buying the larger amounts and I came up with a way to cut their cost. The idea came when I bought my last few reorders of the empty bottles I pack that syrup in. They put 5 or six cases of bottles in a large rather flimsy box that looks like a gorilla handled it when the shipment arrives, but I have not had even a single broken bottle in any of those shipments, the foam peanuts that surrounded each case did their job.

I will be packing the shipments in heavy duty boxes with plenty of space for foam packing peanuts to protect the shipment.

If I get enough feed back saying yes, I will set this up in the near future. To leave a comment you can either post a comment on this site or email me directly: dave@cnymaple.com

Thank you for any feedback.
