Old Elk Bourbon and Dry Town Gin Tasting | Sat 3/30 3-5 pm

Check out some spirits you may not have had the chance to try! On Saturday, March 30 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm, sample Old Elk Bourbon and/or Dry Town Gin for free at the Beverage Warehouse.

OLD ELK BOURBON

The Old Elk recipe includes three quality ingredients – malted barley, rye, and corn. Since they use four times more malted barley than traditional recipes, Old Bourbon contains sweet, light components. The malted barley, combined with a spicy essence of clove from the rye and a traditional rich bourbon character from corn, creates a complete & robust taste profile.

DRY TOWN GIN

For its distinct taste and superb quality, Dry Town Gin won Double Gold at the 2016 New York International Spirits Competition. Dry Town Gin is crafted in Colorado and made with 10 botanicals through an 18-hour soak and vapor extraction. This process brings out the best of each botanical and creates a distinctively refreshing herbal, piney and citrus flavor. It’s all about highlighting the ingredients to bring forward the true expression and character. Visit https://drytown.com/#gin to learn more!

MYTHIC GIN

A botanical gin that expresses the bounty of Vermont, enhanced with flavors that are rarely, if ever, used in gin. The base spirit is the same as is used for all of App Gap Distillery’s grain-based spirits — 45% barley, 30% corn, 25% rye — distilled to a much higher proof to create a neutral base. Balsam fir needles, and even Szechuan peppercorns (along with six other botanicals), are macerated with the traditional juniper berries, then redistilled in their small copper pot still to create an intensely flavored herbal experience with a beautiful nose and round mouthfeel. 

PEREGRINE GIN

Appalachian Gap’s version of a dry gin. If Mythic can be described as an herb garden, Peregrine is a spice garden. Emphatic juniper, spice notes of cumin, cassia, and cardamom, and a long, luscious finish redolent of orange make for a totally unique taste experience.

PAPILIO AGAVE-MAPLE SPIRIT

Appalachian Gap’s master distillers tasted a smokiness in Vermont’s own dark maple syrup that they thought would marry well with the smokinesses of agave spirits like tequila. Rather than adding maple syrup to a base spirit and making something sweet, they fermented agave syrup and maple syrup together to create an amazing “Vtquila”! They import organic blue agave nectar from Jalisco, Mexico, and mix it 4:1 with dark Vermont maple syrup. Three to four weeks of fermentation and double distillation through their hybrid still result in a spirit like no other in the world.

FRACTAL VODKA

As a group of people who pride themselves on making truly unique spirits, it initially seemed a compromise of Appalachian Gap Distillery’s values to make vodka. Vodka is, by definition, neutral; nothing else they make is even remotely subtle, much less neutral. However, the challenge proved too much to resist, so they started experimenting. The result is a surprise on the palate, and a delight in cocktails. Fractal Vodka is made from the same base as all of their grain-based spirits — 45% barley, 30% corn, 25% rye — distilled to at least 190 proof through their stainless still two-column vodka still. Careful and controlled distillation results in a gorgeous, smooth vodka with a lingering sweetness.

SNOWFALL VERMONT WHISKEY

Snowfall is the unaged heart of App Gap’s Ridgeline Vermont Whiskey and has won multiple awards for its incredibly clean, full flavor. They start with a mash of 45% barley, 30% corn, and 25% rye. During the second distillation of Ridgeline, they draw off a small portion from the middle of the “heart’s run”, when the spirit is at its most pure. This then touches oak briefly, is proofed to the powerful 108 proof at which it’s bottled, and is placed in a stainless steel tank to allow the flavors to soften and meld before bottling.

RIDGELINE WHISKEY

The creative folks at Appalachian Gap imagined Ridgeline before they even started the distillery — a rich whiskey, reminiscent of bourbon and Irish whiskies, but with a character all its own. They start with a mash of 45% barley, 30% corn, and 25% rye. Double distilled, it is then aged in ex-bourbon barrels, new American oak barrels, and port wine barrels. The three different barrels result in three distinct whiskies, from which they prepare batches — each slightly different — based on their distillers’ tastes.
