Day 87 Drink: Vermont White Vodka
Vermont Spirits is based in the Northeast Kingdom in St. Johnsbury, Vt. The distillery has taken on two classic Vermont products -- maple syrup and milk -- to make vodka. Not exactly vodka belt ingredients, but they are doing what distillers have done for centuries in using available fermentable sugars.
Vermont White is made using 100 percent milk sugar. The aroma has a classic vodka alcohol base with just a hint of sweetness. The 80 proof vodka has a coating mouthfeel, round vodka flavor and a slight note of honey in the finish.
