We bought our first bottle of bourbon at the Waitsfield Tasting place. Really good bourbon!! We went to the distillery but it was closed when went. We really want to try the rye. Great job!

We recently paid a visit to the new Mad River Distillers Burlington location. They don't make the spirits here but it's a very nice storefront and tasting room, with a cool copper-topped bar. We had a chance to taste a couple of the products, the...More
