About Vermont Spirits
Native to the hardwood forests of New England, maple trees produce an average of nearly four gallons of sap each spring. Just before winter, the trees stockpile starch and sugar in order to survive the freezing nights and short days of New England's harsh climate. As the temperatures warm, the trees convert the sugar into sap, which they begin releasing in a matter of weeks.
In Vermont, master distiller Harry Gorman collects the early runs of the sap produced by the state's maple trees. The early runs — the sap that is released by the tree just after winter — is lighter in color than traditional sap, and has a more delicate and subtle flavor profile. "A very small percentage of the sugar maple's sap output comes in the form of early run sap," says Gorman. "Early run sap is the cream off the top of an altogether wonderfully delicious sugar."
After harvesting the sap, Gorman ferments it slowly using a proprietary strain of yeast at his distillery — Vermont Spirits — situated on the banks of the Ottaquechee River in eastern Vermont. Following fermentation, the vodka is distilled three times using a fractionating column still, allowing Gorman to isolate and separate any impurities and produce an incredibly pure and smooth vodka. After each distillation, the vodka is lightly filtered with charcoal. Then, Gorman and his team of distillers fill and label each bottle by hand. "It takes the early run sap of an entire tree to produce one bottle of this vodka," says Gorman.
According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
