New Vermont distillery to produce vodkaOctober 15,2012
WINDSOR — Vermont’s newest distillery is planning to produce a line of vodka made from locally grown grains from local farms.
American Crafted Spirits plans to begin operations in Windsor in December.
Peter Jillson, the company’s CEO, said the $1 million distillery will use corn, wheat and rye for its products.
He said his first product will be called Silo Vodka, and that he’ll later expand to gin, flavored vodka and brown spirits. The vodka initially will be sold in Vermont, and later in New Hampshire and Maine before being marketed outside the region.
The distillery is being built in the Windsor Industrial Park across from Harpoon Brewery and the Vermont Farmstead Cheese Factory.MORE IN This Just InWASHINGTON ó Two senior Islamic State group leaders were killed in U.S. Full StoryVATICAN CITY ó Pope Francis rightly got credit for helping bring the U.S. Full StoryMAIDUGURI, Nigeria ó Islamic extremists killed 35 people and kidnapped at least 185 in an attack...
