Vermont’s newest distillery is planning to produce a line of vodka made from locally grown grains from area farms.
American Crafted Spirits plans to begin operations in Windsor in December.
Chief Executive Officer Peter Jillson told the Valley News that the million dollar distillery will use corn, wheat and rye for its products.
He said his first product will be called Silo Vodka, and that he’ll later expand to gin, flavored vodka and brown spirits.
The vodka will initially be sold in Vermont, and later in New Hampshire and Maine before being marketed outside the region.
The distillery is being built in the Windsor Industrial Park, across from Harpoon Brewery and the Vermont Farmstead Cheese Factory.
