No 14 Bourbon
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.
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,
An afternoon pick me up. An after dinner cafe. Make it hot or cold. (Sure, you can use any maple sugar and cold brew coffee, but we’re really partial to these ones. 😉
If you’re a bourbon lover, you probably love a good Old Fashioned. This one is the best. No 14 Bourbon kicks your cocktail up a notch. The maple syrup softens the cocktail a bit, making it the perf…
Served hot or add ice. This is a favorite cocktail for the winter season, no matter where you live! We suggest an orange peel and cinnamon stick if you want a cozy feel. A lemon wedge will provide a slightly more refreshing taste. You only need No 14 Bourbon, cider and lemon.

Vermont Gold Vodka
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.
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.)
Vermont Gold Vodka is made with two ingredients (and two only): pure Vermont maple and crystal clear Vermont water. But it’s not a flavored vodka. It’s simply distilled maple mash instead of traditional …

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.
If you want to keep it simple and easygoing this holiday weekend, here are three craft gin cocktails that will give you a bang for your buck. Simple to make. Fantastic flavor profile. Easy-to-pair suggestions. Instantly upgrade your gathering.
If you’re in the mood for a slightly sunnier, a little less bitter version of a negroni, this is for you. Coppers Sugarwood Gin is just on the sweeter side with amped up botanical notes that take the edge off the typical bitterness in a negroni.
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.
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.
Like an old fashioned, but a little less sweet and a little more stubborn.
The star of the show. The Manhattan is a classic, whiskey-forward cocktail, and yet, we suggest you use Coppers Barrel Gin in place of the bourbon. Yes, we do. Our Coppers Barrel Gin is like nothing you’ve ever tasted. Start with 2:1 gin to sweet vermouth ratio and go up (4:1) or down (1:1) until you arrive at your happy place.
