Solin Sugar Bush the ‘Coolest Thing’

The Solin family’s Tapped Infused Maple Syrup, with its sugarbush based in Deerbrook, has been nominated as the “Coolest Thing Made In Wisconsin.”

Dave and Jeremy Solin of Tapped Infused Maple Syrup were nominated for the “Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin.”

The contest is hosted annually by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce. This year, Rep. Katrina Shankland (D- Stevens Point) nominated Tapped Infused Maple Syrup, owned by Jeremy and Abi Solin of Stevens Point.

“I am excited to nominate this phenomenal company for the title of ‘Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin,’” Shankland said.. “Not only do the Solins make tremendous products, but they do so while prioritizing family, community, and respect for and connection to the land.”

The Solin family has been making maple syrup in small batches for five generations, and currently makes and sells craft infused, barrel-aged, and pure maple syrup from sustainably managed forests just north of Antigo.

The Solins work with over 60 partners across Wisconsin and Minnesota. Their infused maple syrups, including cardamom, cinnamon, espresso, ginger, ginseng, hibiscus, hops, red pepper, and turmeric and even whiskey, can be found in coffee shops, cheese shops, bars, restaurants, gourmet food stores, caterers, bike shops, and gift stores in Antigo as well as Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Stevens Point, Plover, Appleton, Oshkosh, Lake Tomahawk, Eau Claire, Minneapolis, and St. Paul.

“I’m so proud of their growth and impact on many communities across Wisconsin, and encourage everyone to vote for their favorite Made in Wisconsin product,” the lawmaker added.

The first round of voting for the contest will be open starting Monday through Sept. 15 at www.madeinwis.com. You can vote once every day.
