The ultimate "green" water, in fact De L'aubier may be the greenest water on earth. This water comes from a new source of harvesting water. Yes, it is harvested.
De L'aubier is made from the sap of the maple tree, and literally harvested like a fine wine during maple syrup season.
Each spring, Quebec maple syrup production generates about one billion liters of sap water. During the process, the sugars are separated from the sap, leaving a full-bodied, silky characteristic.
Until now, this water had been discarded, but is now bottled and dated by harvest date. Because the sap only runs for a short time in early spring, the number of bottles that come to market is limited.
Further, adding to the “green” nature of this water, the harvest is done with an equitable partnership with Quebec Organic Maple Farms.
It bears the name of its origin, the sapwood, which is l'aubier in French. It's the living part of the tree that allows the sap to rise from the roots to the branches. It is a refined taste, and not a sugary or maple flavored water.
