With hundreds of barrels aging and more filled every month, you can certainly say we're passionate about the art of aging craft spirits. We come by gumption honestly; in the 1800s our town of Middlebury, Vermont was home to talented stonecutters, masons and entrepreneurs who spent their lives dedicated to quality, innovation, and above all, patience.
Stonecutter Spirits proudly combines barreling techniques from around the world to age our gin and whiskey right here in Vermont. We are honored to be building a company dedicated to slow life and quality spirits that will stand for generations to come.
After all, aging makes all the difference.

After dozens of test batches, we crafted a gin recipe tailored for barreling in order to age our gin next to its whiskey cousins. Our gin is closely cared for as it ages, letting the bright gin flavors meld with those of the former bourbon barrel. We bottle Single Barrel Gin at the precise moment when you can taste a balance of juniper, cardamom, orange peel, caramel, and oak.
The result of this time and care to detail is a super smooth spirit that bridges the worlds of gin and whiskey. Enjoy with a cube of ice, or see what adventure you can whip up in a cocktail. Available now throughout Vermont.

GOLD MEDAL - 2016 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition
Distilled like a bourbon, aged like an Irish whiskey, and finished like a Scotch, Heritage Cask Whiskey travelled from Kentucky to Vermont to undergo our custom triple barrel aging process. Aged in former bourbon barrels for at least 4 years and then finished in Cabernet barrels.
Notes of soft oak, sweet spice, and a dry, earthy finish. Available now throughout Vermont.
Also currently sleeping in our aging facility is our Small Batch Whiskey, distilled in Vermont from local corn and rye with a smooth, balanced focus. Currently aging in a mix of new barrels and once-used former bourbon barrels, we'll all need to be patient as the whiskey matures over the next four years. Currently sleeping until 2019.
A splash on the rocks is fun; a jigger in a cocktail is a party.
