Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Very nice tasting center with knowledgeable staff. I spent a good half hour here and (sorry I have forgotten his name) the gentleman on site was both personable and articulate about the products and process. Their vodka seems to be their flagship product but as a whiskey drinker, I was impressed by their newer products. I bought some smaller bottles for gifts plus my favorite- a bottle of their bourbon. Supposedly for Thanksgiving but yeah, I done did drink it all (with a little help from my friends) well before the holiday arrived. Stop and support this local business in this lovely state.

The shop in conveniently located with parking. It is small, but has nice displays and accommodating staff. The tasting is $12 for four small pours (1/4 oz or so) and you can pick from 8 to 10 varieties. They explain each including the recipe, style, notes, etc. The spirits are good, but expensive. Small bottles and glasses, etc. are also available.

Their tasting and liquors are beyond worth the trip!! You can do a tasting for $3-$20 depending on how many ounces you want. The liquor itself is fantastic.
