Limited release of Aurora Gold Maple Syrup contains small amount of gold

It’s been said that every cloud has a silver lining, but at Maple Roch in Summerland, every bottle of Aurora Gold Maple Syrup has traces of gold.

The syrup was recently released and is a blend of Canadian maple syrup and pure 24-karat gold from the Northwest Territories.

Roch Fortin, owner of Maple Roch, said the syrup is a partnership with a friend who works in the Northwest Territories.

The syrup contains small amounts of gold.

“Gold is actually edible if it’s pure,” he said.

The 300-bottle run of the maple syrup was launched in December and most of the supply was sold out on the evening it was introduced.
