We were driving by and stopped in. What a wonderful surprise. We tasted 5 of their products, all are so different. We left with the coffee liquor and bourbon. We had so much fun

Great place to having some tasting of Saxtons River Distillery's award winning products. I would highly recommend snowdrop, its a great gin, and even my spouse who is not huge into gin thinks its great. Have a stop by and try out their products.

My husband and I stopped by here today while visiting Brattleboro. Drew was very welcoming and informative about their products. Had a few samples of the very smooth, rich Sapling bourbon and a very good coffee-bourbon liqueur. We will purchase online for gifts. Thanks, Drew!

We had a wonderful time here. The gentleman who helped us was super friendly and nice to talk with. He explained a lot about each spirit and asked us a lot about our visit as well. Very friendly. Spirits were pretty good too!
