Vermont Spirits Distilling

Established in 1999, Vermont Spirits Distilling has won over countless customers with their selection of award-winning artisanal spirits. They first made headlines with their maple vodka, Vermont Gold, but today, they offer a dozen different selections of vodka, bourbon, brandy, whiskey, and gin.

Every product is made with the highest quality local agriculture, including maple, apples, and corn sourced throughout Vermont.

If you want to try Vermont Spirits products for yourself, head to their distillery tasting room. They’re open seven days a week and are always happy to welcome you in for a sample. While you won’t be able to tour the distillery itself, you’ll get to take a peek at the stills and production area as well as browse the retail store. After you’ve had a few samples, you can grab a bottle to take home with you, or pick out another souvenir from their selection of bar accessories, mixers, apparel, and gifts.
