JEFFERSONVILLE — Smugglers’ Notch Distillery is celebrating Vermont’s sugaring season with a new spirit.
This new innovation from Jeremy and Ron Elliott starts with their award-winning rum, but is aged for a total of seven years.
First, it is aged in oak for three years, then in bourbon barrels for two years.
Finally, the new rum is finished for another two years in their own organic maple syrup barrels.
The distillery says the result is “an incredibly easy-drinking and smooth amber spirit with a seamless flavor profile of complex whiskey overtones and the perfect amount of naturally-infused sweetness.”
They say the rum will make a great addition to any rum connoisseur’s cabinet.
This very limited release, with only 181 bottles, is available at the Smugglers Notch Distillery tasting rooms in Jeffersonville and Waterbury.
