Stop Along the Way
Jul 2019 • Couples
In planning a drive between Woodstock and Lake Placid, we decided to stop for a break at Appalachian Gap Distillery. We like to taste different spirits and to hear the stories about the whiskey, vodka or liquor from the distiller.

Regretfully, the young lady who was responsible did not know the answer to the most elementary questions. Certainly I don’t hold that against her; I was disappointed that the owner of AGD would put her in this position. As you plan a visit it would be good to clarify the knowledge level of the employee conducting the tasting.

The venue is new, neat and clean and easy to find. It’s in an industrial park with plenty of parking.

In the interest of clarity: the young lady in question is my daughter (I am one of the owners, and own the building), and has been working in the tasting room for only a few weeks. She knows about the products, and is great at taking care of tastings and mixing cocktails (and freeing me up to do other work). I did not give her clear enough direction on when to grab me to help out (I was in the building, as well) with questions and to tell the stories you were hoping to hear. Please know that at least one of the owners is here whenever we are open as a general rule, and visitors can always ask to speak to one of us if we are not in the tasting room. Ask for Lars or Chuck. Please come by again, and one of us will talk your ear off <grin>.

Great lineup of handcrafted spirits
Jul 2018 • Couples
I thoroughly enjoyed tasting the spirits at this distillery. The tasting was complimentary and the host was very kind. There were no sales pitches or pressure to buy. I thought the gin was outstanding and purchased a bottle of it as well as some of the coffee liquor. The vodka was fun too. They run a very nice business.

Enjoyed our visit
May 2018 • Couples
We stopped in as we passed through Middlebury and sampled each of the liquors available. They were all excellent and I even enjoyed the sample of gin and tonic which isn’t usually my drink. The owner was friendly and knowledgeable and we left with a bottle of rum and a bottle of whiskey. The tasting room is also dog friendly which was fantastic as it was warm and our dogs were along for the trip.

New distillery in Middlebury with unique spirits. The owner is very passionate about his products. Enjoyed the tasting; it was free. Liked the coffee liquor and purchased it.

Tasting
Sep 2016 • Friends
Taylor gave us comparison tastes of gin, whiskey and coffee-flavored whiskey. He gave us insight into the distilling process as well as business culture in Vermont.

Very knowledgeable!

The owner took the time to tell us about the work he'd put into each of the different spirits and how they were different from what you could get from other distilleries. Definitely worth a visit if you're coming by this area!

Wonderful small distiller with creative minds
Jul 2016 • Couples
You must try this place on any Vermont visit. They make some seriously great products. They can fill your liquor cabinet nicely. There were so many to choose from but you have to ask for the Papilio Repasado, it's an aged tequila like drink of awesomeness. Their feature Ridgeline whiskey is very good as well. The also make these unbelievable coffee flavored drinks for both those who love coffee and those who aren't crazy about it.

Diamond in the rough

It was a pleasant surprise to find this distillery. The different spirits were very differently infused with wonderful local flavors. Try them all , there's at least one you'll take home with you. We bought four different bottles.

Don't miss! Even if you think you don't like liquor
May 2016 • Couples
My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to be told about this little place and loved it. Will go back and bring more home. First up, we love gin and tequila and coffee but even if you don't this is good American gin (not too piney). The tequila isn't the swill college age kids chug, it is the good stuff. They have a few others to try as well. We really enjoyed visiting with the owner- this little gem is not to be missed.

Amazing spirits!
Apr 2016 • Solo
I was lucky enough to listen to the reviews for this independent distillery. Their products are excellent. I highly recommend the coffee liqueur that puts the main brand to shame. Leave extra time to talk with the owners; it's always a treat to talk to the artisans of amazing, local products
