Good deal based on what grade type it is, see my own Maple deal to get an idea if you are confused, thats a very good price if it's pure & the equivilent to the canadian grade (u.s. grade is less rigourous, so only adds to the confusion) ...nice find, & worth snapping up a few bottles I expect.
Bit odd this as the last time that I looked Vermont was in the US of A, not in Canada, and also produces lots of first class Maple Syrup. However, Asda tells me that this is 100% Canadian - go figure.

Vermont is in the USA but VERTMONT is in Canada.
Sadly we still don't know the quality grade, anyone able to check!?

My Bad, I assumed it was a typo (smacks legs in disgust).

On reflection, Vertmont makes perfect sense as it translates from the French to Green Mount(ain) and, as the French had Vermont at one time, maybe Vermont started out as Vertmont?
I've tried this along with quite a few other brands from different stores. This is far too light with very little maple taste in it. You're buying a bottle of sugar if you get it. Nothing compared to what I used to get on the other side of the pond. Closest I could find with decent maple taste is Rowse organic maple syrup.

That said some people may light the light variety, personally I just don't see the point.

The Maple Syrup that Aldi have on offer at the moment for £2.99 is rather nice (to my taste at least) and it's not too pale and passionate looking/tasting. I think you would certainly recognise it as the real thing. Personally, I quite enjoy something robust like Dark Amber but I've tended to only be able to find that, at a sensible price, in northern New England and, as I don't visit the USA any more, I have to do without.

p.s. any suggestions for a source of Dark Amber on this side of the puddle and at a sensible price would be much appreciated.

I tend to pick up the 0.946 litre bottle from Costco for around £10 - can't remember the exact price but it does compare well with this deal. Says it's grade A (medium amber) on the bottle and tastes very nice.

Rowse organic maple syrup +1

I can be very very very picky with certain "foods" and Maple Syrup just happens to be one.

I was definately NOT impressed with this Vermont brand but it might be nice to others.

I wont vote

Same for me. No taste. Would not buy again.
Good deal anyway, I can imagine with a bit more money printing to support the precious banks stuff like this will shoot up even more.
Better to go toAldi for 250ml for £2,99 - 250gms=187ml at Asda
It's been this price for a while. I just finished a bottle on pancake day. I can confirm what others have said, it is a bit thin and weak tasting. Definitely not a premium brand. I won't be buying again, as I would rather spend more on a better brand.

Even odder still!! If you click on the product information in the ASDA link, it states: Manufacturer- .....bla-bla-bla....3060 Espergærde - DK.
So, Country of Origin-- Canada, but, manufactured in Denmark!!??

Cold £1.50 for 180g at my Tesco express
well, let me put s few facts straight here, VERTMONT is not in Canada, no such place, this is not Maple syrup, it's a fake wanna be. and therefore should be removed from the shelves, it's not what it says on the bottle it's a total fraud, i wonder if the Canadian authorities would be interested in this so called product of Canada.

vertmont.com does'nt exist also
Vertmont-sur-le lac is in Quebec, and that is where the Vertmont maple syrup comes from! It is genuine maple syrup, not fake. A quick google would have told you that!
