Taste these award-winning products

Vermont is home to a thriving spirits industry. Our in-state distillers are producing a wide variety of products, from vodka and maple liqueurs to gin and rye whiskey. Many of them are winning national acclaim and international awards for their fine quality and appealing flavor. A number of the distilleries have tasting rooms where the products they make can be sampled and purchased. You may also find local distillers at farmers’ markets, special events, or festivals around the state.
