Vermont Spirits

So I am in the beautiful state of Vermont staying in the Green Mountain area at the Sugarbush Ski Resort. Yesterday we ventured out to the farmer’s market in Waitsfield. There we saw abundant produce, maple syrup, home canned goods, pottery and booze! Of course there are local breweries like Long Trail, Alchemist, Fiddlehead and Harpoon to name a few as well as local wineries. However I was smitten with the Mad River Distillery and Caledonia Spirits. Mad River Distillery which is a small craft distiller of bourbon, whiskey and maple rum using locally produced grains and mountain spring water. Caledonia Spirits is another distiller making handcrafted vodka from raw honey as well as gin to which raw honey is added to impart a softness to the gin. I was pleasantly surprised to see these distillers at the farmer’s market and have the opportunity to sample each. Of course I made a few purchases and look forward to sharing with family and friends. Salute’
