Maple 3 Maple Water Harvest
Why the Name Maple 3 ? 


Our brand is named Maple 3 after the address of our first sugar shack. In fact, this sugar bush is located in the region of Chaudière-appalaches (Quebec) on the land lot #3 and directly on Maple Street. 


Moreover, the number 3 was simply a lucky number for us and is also referring to the funny mispronounciation French Quebecers do when they say the words "three" and "tree". The way we pronounce Maple 3 will often be heard as either "Maple Tree" or "Maple three", which is quite funny to French speaking people,  as Maple Tree (Maple 3) also refers to the fact that maple water is harvested straight from the trees !

How is maple water harvested? Here are the steps from the tree to you:

1. Creation
3. Filtration
4. Bottling

Maple 3 works with few but large organic maple farm producers in different areas of the province of Quebec to source the best quality of water available during the maple season (spring).

Maple Water Collected from Trees with a Tubing System

Maple 3 maple water is, on the contrary, not collected with metal bins. The sap flows straight from the tree into food grade bassin through a tubing system. Once in the bassins, it will rapidly be filtered and sterilized before being bottled. Our unique filtration process allows us to ensure a superior quality maple water naturally filled with minerals and electrolytes and very refreshing to taste.

Here is a picture showing blue tubes transporting maple sap from the trees to the silo (for storage before it is filtered).
