Caledonia Spirits was established by Todd Hardie with one simple goal: to make spirits out of the best ingredients he can find. Years as a beekeeper and naturalist give Todd a deep respect for our regional agriculture and ecology, and drive him to bring people the best both have to offer.
This gin is a celebration of Caledonia’s special connection to the land. They use pure grain spirits as a canvas to showcase juniper berry and raw northern honey. Added just before bottling, the raw honey imparts unique floral qualities that vary with season and blossom. Their distillery, on the banks of the Lamoille River in the Northeast Kingdom, is rooted in the agriculture of Vermont. Hardwick, Caledonia Country, is a community inspired by farms where the production of milk, cheese, timber, grains, honey, seeds, and herbs are part of their lives and help define their place.
Barr Hill Gin has just three simple ingredients: Grain for the spirit, Juniper for the Gin, and a touch of Honey for sweetness. It does not need anything else. Round and soft, yet assertive and complex, Barr Hill is not a dry gin, but rather more in the style of an Old Tom Gin.
