Cheers! Drinks From Middlebury

Written by Sky Barsch on . Posted in Recipes, Taste of the Landscape

In our Spring 2016 issue, we told you about a beverage boom happening in Middlebury. Some of the featured brands include Appalachian Gap Distillery, Aqua ViTea Kombucha, Stonecutter Spirits, Vermont Coffee Company and Woodchuck Cider. 


Mountain Breeze, a cocktail featuring Aqua ViTea Kombucha and Stonecutter Spirits Gin.

“The concentration of beverage companies in one area is a big plus,” says Appalachian Gap co-founder Chuck Burkins. “When you’ve got this many tasting venues, you’ve got synergy.” 

Here are a few recipes to try from the businesses mentioned in the Spring 2016 article.
