Great place to having some tasting of Saxtons River Distillery's award winning products. I would highly recommend snowdrop, its a great gin, and even my spouse who is not huge into gin thinks its great. Have a stop by and try out their products.

My husband and I stopped by here today while visiting Brattleboro. Drew was very welcoming and informative about their products. Had a few samples of the very smooth, rich Sapling bourbon and a very good coffee-bourbon liqueur. We will purchase online for gifts. Thanks, Drew!

Anyone can come into the tasting room. We will card for 21 drinking age if they wish to have a tasting while they're here. Thank you for asking.
