VERMONT SPIRITS TASTING
Friday, 4 to 7 pm
Feb 10, 2012
Legacy Liquor Store is proud to introduce Vermont Spirits to British Columbia as part of Tales of the Cocktail: Meet the Maker.
Vermont Spirits vodkas are hand-crafted in New England’s Green Mountain State. The vodkas are triple-distilled using only local spring water and receiving a very light charcoal filtration at the end of each cycle. Only the techniques of artisan distilling, constant vigilance and highly accurate, laboratory-quality stills would allow the fermentation of the unique characteristics of maple to come through.

These liqueurs are local, balanced and refreshing with little sugar.
