Default Local Distilaries/Breweries

first noted: I do not own any business or work at any businesses that deal with any types of food or alcohol. I am just a person that likes local products and interested in what everyone else is drinking and where they might be getting it.
I am allergic to beer, so I won't put any pictures or offer any suggestions on that topic, but am always interested in what people are enjoying to share with my friends.
I'll start off with Nashoba Valley Winery. A great spot in Bolton, MA. They were the 1st orchard to be licensed to make both wine and spirits. The wine is a little sweet for my tastes, but their spirits are great! Went recently to find they are making a new Vodka (my wife's favorite is theirs always have it in the house) and a Bourbon that I hadn't had yet. I have had the first bottling of their 5 yr and 11 yr whiskeys and were both very good. The bourbon did not disappoint.
And if you read the Vodka, 20% of proceeds go to help Ukraine!

Another I had a few years back and was worth the drive for the scenery was small little distillery in VT, VT Spirits. The ride up was amazing!! But getting home was also most enjoyable. The bourbon was nice and smoky if I remember correctly, and they made a maple whiskey, I'm not a huge fan typically of flavored whiskeys but it did have a nice flavor next to a camp fire. This is one that I need to find time to drive back to some time.

For $1.38 at the Gilford or Plymouth Walmart, they have an attractive gallon bottle of Crystal Geyser Alpine Spring Water in a re-usable plastic bottle with a screw-on cap, and a carry handle.

This bottled water is made in Moultonborough NH, just a short walk across the hill, there, from the http://www.castleintheclouds.org/thi...alking-trails/. Make some great coffee, hot chocolate, or hot apple spice with that fantastic $19.92 Walmart coffee maker.

Default Lakes Region?

Chachee, are these available in the Lakes Region? I'm unlikely to drive to VT or MA for the items you're posting about.

I don't believe Nashoba Winery is in NH, but I honestly don't know. I would rather go there to get it and give the money directly to them and enjoy a nice day there.
VT Spirits I have seen randomly in the NH liquor stores, just this past week I did see No.14 on the shelf.
I have plenty more places, just didn't have pics of the bottles yet.
Tamworth Distillery is a great location and products. I am not a brandy person but their apple tastes just like a nice Cognac (yes I know they are related). I wll get pics maybe later today of that.

Don't forget Smokey Quartz Distillery in Seabrook. They offer a very nice line of premium products.

The owner is a USMC vet and a great guy.

I have had the Smokey Quartz Bourbon and it is good. Haven't been there yet but it is on my list.
The Catherdral in Conway is also on my list, haven't been but will be up there again this Summer scouting out homes to relocate so I hope to stop in there as well.

It's time for some clever distiller to invent a new type of distilled beverage.
