Drink Concepts

We like to say our spirits are Forest To Bottle In Every Bottle. Sustainability is an important part of our story and a journey we’ve been on since before the company was started. The seminal idea was to ‘take what the land gives us’ and make something great from it.
That’s why our spirits are clean, neat and simply ready to go. So try them straight or on the rocks. Upgrade your favorite cocktail or experiment and try something new. There’s something for everyone… in every bottle.

No 14 Bourbon

Neat or with a single cube
Upgrade any traditional bourbon cocktail
Our Favorite: The No 14 Manhattan

“The maple shows up in the aroma and just a flash of sweetness on the palate. Otherwise, it’s light-bodied and silky, with a surprising cherry-vanilla note on the mid-palate and a creamy, citrusy fade. Would be a delight mixed with ginger and lime.” (Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast: 92 points)

Vermont Gold Vodka

Neat or with a single cube
Upgrade any traditional vodka cocktail
Our Favorite: The Vermontini

“Instantly recognizable: Distilled from maple sap, this vodka has a light caramel aroma and a rich, sweet, lingering butterscotch flavor. However, it’s not cloying; rather, the flavor is light and teasing, and balanced out by alcohol bite. A nice base for lightly sweet cocktails.” (Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast)
