Sapling Liqueur Saxtons River Distillery Discover Gay Brattleboro Vermont Attractions Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern Vermont

All Sapling liqueurs are rich and full bodied, and feature a refined sweetness unique to maple sugar which is not overpowering or cloying.

For many years the Brattleboro/West River Valley region has been a hotbed of specialty food innovation and farm-to-table restaurant operations – long before it became fashionable and trendy.

Check out nearby Saxtons River Distillery (just north of downtown Brattleboro at 155 Chickering Drive), which produces several premium maple infused liqueurs sold under the Sapling Vermont brand.

Sapling Vermont is available in either Brandy, Bourbon or Rye whiskey versions. All Sapling liqueurs are rich in flavor, full bodied, and feature a refined sweetness unique to maple sugar which is not overpowering or cloying. Sapling is brewed using Vermont Grade A maple syrup and refined ultra-pure spirits.

In addition, Saxtons River Distillery has recently launched a new coffee-based liqueur called “Perc”,  made from coffee that is roasted and ground by another Brattleboro-based specialty food purveyor, Moca Joe’s Coffee.

Saxtons River Distillery has an informal tasting room that is open six days a week where you can sample (and buy) Sapling Vermont and learn about cocktail & food recipes that include Sapling Vermont products.

While you’re in the neighborhood, also consider stopping by the nearby Grafton Village Cheese Shop (approximately 1 mile to the south on Route 30) for a sampling of their many award-winning cheddar cheeses, all made on the premises!

Guest Reviews

Retreat From the World!

I attended a 3-day spring Yoga & Wellness Retreat Weekend at Frog Meadow and felt so well taken care of at this comfortable mountaintop inn.

It was too drizzly and cool to enjoy a swim in the natural pond, but the wood-fired hot tub, the generous hospitality of the hosts to make sure hot and cold beverages were always available, home-baked breakfast goods and sweet treats made me feel cared for!

And there were so many comfortable spaces to relax in alone or socialize with the group!

Easy drive to nearby Newfane Village or Brattleboro for great dining options and local sightseeing…but it’s also easy to spend all your time neatly tucked away into this Vermont hideaway!

Would love to come back for another getaway treat!
