Vermont Spirits Coppers Gin
The Coppers Gin is named for coins issued by the Republic of Vermont in 1785. This expressive American Gin is distilled with wild juniper berries picked in Northern Vermont along with coriander, angelica root, cassia, orange peel, and cardamom pods. The spirit itself is wonderfully lush while vibrant with bright acidity and fresh citrus accents. So many craft Gins seems to have the botanicals externally attached while the Coppers Gin presents a beautifully made seamless spirit.
Vermont Spirits was launched in 1998 with the intention of creating unique Vodka from the state’s famed product, maple. Today they offer a wide range of spirits that now include Gin, Brandy, Bourbon, and a unique Maple Spirit. Vermont Spirits spirits are hand-made in small batches from the land and with hand-built equipment. The still house is an old-fashioned post and beam barn built from pine and hemlock harvest from the property on an old stone foundation that first supported a barn built 150 years ago. Distillers Harry Gorman and Joe Buswell say, "Our goal is to produce spirits with flavor and true character… not flavored spirits, and we distill each batch with the spirits connoisseur and lover of fine food in mind."
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are alluring and complex with orange peel on near equal footing with the juniper supported by coriander and cardamon giving a slight Indian spice feel. The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich and silky grain spirit core infused with vibrant juniper and citrus with enough acidity to add lift and brightness. Medium to full-bodied with a velvety core spirit with the botanicals seamlessly integrated while being perfectly balanced.
