First it was cheese. Then craft beer. Now it’s distilled spirits. And like Vermont Cheese and Vermont Craft Beers, Vermont Spirits are winning awards and raising the bar (no pun intended) for whiskey, rum, rye, vodka, and gin.
At the Southern Vermont Art and Craft Festival, we are very pleased to welcome five fabulous distilled spirits Exhibitors:
Whistle Pig 100% Rye Whiskey – Award winning and one of the best whiskeys in the world.
Dunc’s Mill – the longest running distillery in Vermont, distilling small batches of rum made from scratch.
Saxton’s River Distillery – featuring Maple Liqueur, Maple Bourbon, and Maple Rye.
Caledonia Spirits – award winning gin and vodka made with honey.
Appalachian Gap – making a variety of spirits from their solar powered distillery.
Samples will be available at the Festival, and you can purchase your favorites right on the spot and take the bottles home to enjoy later with friends and family. Gift shopping? look no further! These wonderfully crafted spirits will please even the most discerning palette.
