Barr Hill Spirits
In 2011, we made our first batches of Barr Hill Gin, our flagship spirit made with juniper and raw honey. The incredible success of Barr Hill Gin inspired further experimentation with raw honey in distillation, eventually creating an entire line of Barr Hill spirits aimed at supporting pollinators and responsible beekeepers. In addition to the gin, these include Barr Hill Vodka, a vodka distilled entirely from raw honey, and Tom Cat Gin, a robust, barrel aged version of our gin perfect for whiskey and gin fans alike.
In 2016 we began quietly experimenting with whiskey. Using 100% Vermont grown and malted grains, we mill, ferment, distill and age in house at our distillery. We are committed to crafting all of our whiskey ourselves, and never sourcing. As with all great and authentically crafted whiskey, this has been a slowly evolving endeavor over the years. Since 2019, when we moved to our new, bigger home in Montpelier, we’ve been able to increase distillation of this authentically Vermont whiskey and, as it ages, have been patiently waiting to share it with you soon.
Experiments in Agricultural Rectification
These small batch spirits are rooted in the land and celebrate Vermont’s rich crops and capabilities. They allow us to partner with small scale local farms to create new and exciting products that support farms and push the boundaries of distillation.
