Smugglers' Notch Distillery® is a father/son partnership in Jeffersonville, Vermont. The distillery was founded in 2006 at the foot of the famed Smugglers' Notch, site of many a clandestine bootlegger's run through this rugged Vermont mountain pass. The smuggling route was actually first used during the 1800s to move goods during the trade embargo and then again in the 1920s to move liquor during prohibition. Today this enchanting area provides outdoor enthusiasts with a boulder-laden curved mountain road and caves to explore. Smugglers' Notch Distillery® provides Carefully crafted, award-winning spirits. Using the finest ingredients blended with pristine Vermont spring water, we make, barrel age, blend, and hand-bottle remarkably distinctive, spirits one small batch at a time.

All of the liquors were great. The location is tucked away in a small town which is cool to drive through. The actual distillery is not much to see. Just a bar up front in a small room.

I stopped to sample and bring home some souvenirs. What a great local distillery. Friendly staff. Good selection. Fast service. Great products. I was intrigued by the hopped gin, and thought that barrel aged maple syrup may be the best idea ever. It tasted fantastic.

Small and cozy. Knowable staff. Friendly and relaxed. I sampled great whiskey and had to bring back a bottle or two. I recommend this place. Quick and easy to get to.

Stopped in briefly after looking at a nearby covered bridge, and the lady there was super nice, letting us try everything, even though she was having a rough day. Definitely worth a stop!
