A Trip To the Distillery

Friday, November 27, 2015

On a recent trip to Woodstock, Vermont, I visited Silo Distillery, a spirit company nestled in Windsor, Vermont's Green Mountains.

Lining the walls of Silo Distillery are brimming bottles of vodka (among bottles of whiskey and gin).  Normally, I'm not a big fan of vodka, but this place offers the likes of freshly infused lavender vodka and similar artisan spirits.

In a mixed drink, it is quite a treat. The place was founded in 2011 by 8th generation Vermonters and man does it feel like home.  Those who work there are friendly and inviting.  The distillery has a unique blend of cosmopolitan ambiance with a rustic, country flare.  For example, on Friday evenings, they offer live music in their loft space which is painfully appealing.

We left the distillery for a cozy dinner in Barnard, home to the exclusive Twin Farms Resort.  Driving through the bucolic neighborhood it's easy to see why such a renowned Relais & Chateaux chose this area to call home.  When we passed Silver Lake, I had to pull over to get out of the car.  The amber sun setting behind the mountains and the winter sky reflected in the lake was enough to take my breath away.  Vermont...I love you.  Mother Nature is good.
