“Vermont Spirits Gold is pure, delicate, unflavored vodka handmade in small batches from the sugar of maple sap. It is triple distilled and lightly filtered to allow the distinctive quality of the maple fermentation to come through.”
Yum. For those of you who don’t know this about me already, I’m a Vermonter, and us Vermonters LOVE, I mean LOVE our maple syrup. It’s one of the lifebloods of our economy. If you try and serve anything but 100% pure maple syrup to a true Vermonter, be prepared for a swift kick to the nuts.
My whole life, when someone offered me “maple syrup”, it was always 100% pure maple syrup, I was never aware of anything else. However, I didn’t realize other people eat substances which they call “maple syrup.” The first time in college when I tried the Aunt Jemima “maple syrup” in the dining hall, I assumed maple syrup is maple syrup, and it would taste like what I was used to. Blech. What a disgusting let down. Note to readers: don’t ever bring that fake syrup crap near me again.
So yeah, needless to say, a vodka that’s distilled from maple syrup instead of grain or potato sounds MONEY. Can’t wait to try it.
