With their pledge to support local agriculture and regional raw materials, Caledonia Spirits of Hardwick VT still captures international hearts with their “landcrafted” spirits. Their Barr Hill Gin has won Double Gold at the New York International Spirits Competition, and “Gin of the Year” title at the Hong Kong International Spirit Competition, while the Berlin International Spirits Competition named them American Vodka Distillery of the year in 2016. Beginning as an apiary, the business has expanded from incorporating raw honey in early distillations to growing their own barley, rye and elderberries for their gin, whiskey and vodka. Tom Cat gin is aged in oak barrels made in Vermont from local, sustainably harvested wood. Come visit their new Montpelier location this summer and try a taste of what the rest of the world recognizes as the best!
