New Flavor Contest Bracket 2024 4


Maple Madness, Cocktail Craze, Honey Hysteria – get in on the action. We’re holding a bracket style tournament competition to determine a new Runamok limited release flavor!

Between March 06-17, we’ll be crowd-sourcing your best suggestions for a new flavor of maple syrup, cocktail mixer, bitters, or honey. No wrong answers, anything goes. From there, our Research and Development team will narrow it down to a bracket of the top sixteen contenders who will face off in head-to-head contests – and you get to vote for who advances to the big time.

Voting tips off on March 19, and four bracket rounds will advance until a final winner is announced on April 09.

The winning flavor will be available for pre-order at the end of the tournament, and our flavor alchemists will get to work bringing this to life for a limited run later this year.


All participants have the chance to win our grand prize – a year of Runamok maple syrup. Anyone who submits a nomination or casts their votes is automatically entered for a chance to win a 12-month Subscription to our Bottle of the Month Club. Plus, plenty of other sweet prize drawings will be awarded along the way!
