The Woodstock Maple Drop is a signature Vermont Gold Vodka cocktail. We love it for the way the cocktail so elegantly highlights the flavor profile of our handcrafted vodka. Plus it’s a versatile cocktail that we enjoy all year long. If you’re not sure about the “verjus,” read on for explanation and alternatives. The Basics: Simply Vermont Gold Vodka with sweetness from both the maple syrup and verjus, balanced with gentle acidity and citrusy fruit flavor from the verjus.
This signature No 14 Bourbon cocktail was suggested by our friends at Boston Harbor Hotel’s Rowes Wharf Bar. Next time your in Boston, stop by Rowes and order one.
With the Boston waterfront as its backdrop, Rowes Wharf Bar is a classy place to get a drink. Dark wood furnishings, blood red oriental carpeting and overstuffed leather armchairs, remind us of Bar Hemingway on Place Vendome in Paris, or Off the Record, a cozy upscale bar under the Hay Adams Hotel in Washington D.C.
Sugarwood Trees Knees is the Vermonter’s version of the classic Prohibition Era cocktail, Bees Knees. In our version, hold the honey and use pure Vermont maple instead. We’ve come a long way from bathtub gin, too. You’ll notice subtle hints of green tea and orange peel, brought out by a touch of pure maple and a refreshing splash of lemon.

Our favorite gin, plus shrub, lemonade and soda water.
This is probably Don’s favorite craft cocktail to make. (You should ask him!) The use of cocktail shrub introduces a whole new flavor profile to an otherwise ordinary spritzer. We prefer Coppers American Gin, but if you wanted a slightly sweeter cocktail, you could try this with Coppers Sugarwood Gin. Either way, this might just be your new fave.
The ingredients in the Old Fashioned are all about balancing bitterness and sweetness, to make for a subtly sweet, yet mature bourbon drink. Bitters adds flavors that bring the other ingredients together, but its primary job is to balance the sweetness. While most Old Fashioned recipes would have you add a sugar cube,
The Kirk Douglas Gold is our signature drink, made for our US Modernist friends each year, in Palm Springs, at Modernism Week. It’s a celebration of a special era, a style – or maybe lifestyle, which in turn celebrates nature, environment, music, food, drink and … well, style. Hats off to Modernism. Lemon, mint, Vermont Gold Vodka and soda. Simple, yet, this cocktail highlights the particular elements of the vodka. (So choose a vodka you like very much.)
At Vermont Spirits Distilling Co, our Coppers Sugarwood Gin is blessed with a touch of maple during its finishing processes. As such, we don’t think you need to add any extra sweetners, like simple syrup, that you’ll find in other recipes.
