Vermont Spirits Coppers - Sugarwood Gin
The Coppers Gin is named for coins issued by the Republic of Vermont in 1785. The Sugarwood expression is made with their famous maple spirit base distilled with wild juniper berries picked in Northern Vermont along with angelica root, cassia, orange peel, and green tea. Sugarwood is a wonderful hybrid style Gin being part Genever and part American style Gin with lovely sweet maple spirit notes that add additional lift to the vibrant botanicals while still finishing dry as the orange peel notes linger for minutes.
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 handmade in small batches from the land and with hand-built equipment. 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 nose is very inviting and complex with beautiful scents of orange and juniper with flanking notes of earthy angelica root and citrus. The palate concurs with the nose while delivering a rich and slightly sweet, maple spirit core dosed with juniper, orange, and green tea. Full-bodied with a silky and semisweet core spiked with fresh botanicals while being perfectly balanced with a bright dose of citrus-like acidity.
