The Fuel of Triathletes
DRINKmaple was founded by two dedicated triathletes, Kate Weiler and Jeff Rose, brought together by their passion for whole foods, nutrition and endurance sports.
The duo discovered the subtly sweet taste and naturally hydrating benefits of maple water while traveling to Quebec to compete in the Ironman Mont-Tremblant triathlon. At first taste and after experiencing the hydrating benefits firsthand, they were hooked. Following their Canadian adventure, they sought to find a pure maple water source in the United States.
