Coffee Rum

Full strength rum and full strength coffee in one bottle. We combine the some of the same incredible rum from our Barrelhead Rums with Colombian cold brew coffee to create something truly special.

Joe’s Pond Gin

Our very first spirit on the market is our highly sippable gin. Named in honor of that central Vermont institution of relaxation and outdoor life, our Joe’s Pond Gin is a harmonious blend of the robust and the delicate: sweet juniper on the entry that gives over to citrus and spice, developing a delicious fruit note on the back end. Each sip finishes clean and lingers refreshingly.

Viking Funeral

Viking Funeral is a very special limited-release spirit we created in collaboration with Groennfell Meadery in St. Albans. We distilled 4,900 bottles of their Mannaz Mead down to just 321 half-size bottles of honey spirit. The result is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. You can actually taste the honeycomb in each sip. This one is a distillery exclusive, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
