Overview

Smugglers' Notch Distillery® is a father/son partnership in Jeffersonville, Vermont. The distillery was founded in 2006 at the foot of the famed Smugglers' Notch, site of many a clandestine bootlegger's run through this rugged Vermont mountain pass. The smuggling route was actually first used during the 1800s to move goods during the trade embargo and then again in the 1920s to move liquor during prohibition. Today this enchanting area provides outdoor enthusiasts with a boulder-laden curved mountain road and caves to explore. Smugglers' Notch Distillery® provides Carefully crafted, award-winning spirits. Using the finest ingredients blended with pristine Vermont spring water, we make, barrel age, blend, and hand-bottle remarkably distinctive, spirits one small batch at a time.

Because they're great, and I know they're great. Last couple of times I've been there the place has been packed, so I just grab my traditional bottle of bourbon and I'm on my way. The good thing is that if I just buy, they will...More

This location has several different types of spirits as well as gift sets and bourbon maple syrup. These all make excellent gifts and souvenirs. The staff is happy to see free a tasting to help in the decision making.

Reasonable tasting fee and there's a cheese tasting shop next door. Two experiences with one stop. This is a retail shop that offers spirits and other items related to alcohol products.

Their tasting and liquors are beyond worth the trip!! You can do a tasting for $3-$20 depending on how many ounces you want. The liquor itself is fantastic.
