How about vodka? No? Well, you should.
VERMONT SPIRITS is producing beautifully packaged and very impressive vodkas, and we got to sample two of them.
Vermont White Vodka is made from milk sugar. It is a slightly sweet nose, is a touch sweet on the palate, and is very pleasant. (Rating ****)
Vermont Gold Vodka is, in a word, unbelievably delicious. It is very viscous—what a delight to swish this about the mouth. And the maple note is terrific. Wow, we’re amazed. PERFECT RATING. (Rating *****)
