from our farm to your flask.
The Distillery, Elm Brook Farm produces exceptionally fine spirits using only maple.
BARREL AGED MAPLE SPIRIT
The world’s first dark spirit made from only 100% pure maple. An outstanding special spirit, it has aromas of Cognac with the flavors of a smooth whiskey. Aged for no less than 3 years in new American oak barrels and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV)
PREMIUM SIPPING VODKA
Distilled to produce an ultra-smooth, hand-crafted vodka made from only 100% pure maple. It is the only straight vodka with a signature maple flavor and aroma after distillation. Artfully crafted to be absolutely clear in color and full in body.
BARREL AGED MAPLE SYRUP
Providing customers who love maple and New England with a charming reminder of their favorite spirit. A syrup directly from the farm, aged in used Rail Dog barrels creating delicious and amazing flavors of vanilla, almond, and spices.
Established in 1999 in Fairfield, Vermont, Elm Brook Farm traces its beginning to colonial America and the Revolutionary War. This agrarian heritage is sustained, both economically and environmentally, and contributes value back to the community.
The Distillery, Elm Brook Farm arose from a passion to develop the finest spirits by cultivating its own and local natural resources. In harmony, the estate serves the distillery and the distillery exists to preserve the estate.
It is our dogs’ adventures that are the inspiration for our fine spirits as Braque Français are naturally inquisitive and brave. Rail Dog is a tribute to one of our puppies that was adopted by a new family, but decided to return home on her own by hopping onto a commuter train. Likewise, Literary Dog honors our dogs who have been named after authors, as reading is a favorite pastime of ours. They provide companionship on our journey wherever the tracks take us.
The distilling equipment and processes were created, designed and built by David Howe, Master Distiller. Lisa Howe has organically grown the customer base and relationships by managing ever increasing demand against precious supply. The Distillery has created the finest world class spirits from combining a colonial farm with a simple yet refined life.
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce we sold the farm and closed the distillery. This decision has been a difficult one, but we believe now is the right time to close this chapter of our lives.
