Default Tavern 27, 13 1/2, or 6.75?

As many already know, tavern 27 has been dormant inside and operating outside since Feb 2020. The team has been reduced to 1 1/2 people. That would be Leslie, the mom, as 1 1/4 , and baygo, the pop, as 1/4.

The memories of outside operation all winter last year will certainly live on for a long time for many of us, however, internally there is no interest in an encore performance, therefore as of this weekend we will be attempting to resurrect the tavern.

The previous operations were what we had labeled an Americana twist on Tapas. A resurrection is likely to take quite some time. We will initiate our effort by introducing a more traditional tapas experience. There will be a smaller selection of menu options with most being on display behind the bar for a point at and receive service style.

We hope to one day re-emerge as the tavern so many of you praised, and until then plead with you for your extended patience.

We have added one more feather to the hat of accomplishments with the introduction of a distillery on property and are very excited to feature our very own Dancing Rabbit Vodka to the mix in and effort to brand us as a martini bar.

It’s been a long 19 months with a number of silver linings on the cloud. Some kind regulars were generous with the creations/contribution of this link

Retail sales of the Vodka start this weekend with the first 50 people receiving a logo-ed shot glass

Keep it honest, keep it real and you will succeed. What will be the sitting arrangements? Are you taken reservations?

Default Where else to buy?

When you ran the survey a while back, I voted for Scotch, which of course, you can only do in Scotland. Nevertheless., martinis can be a lot of fun. Best wishes for much success.

Will Dancing Rabbit be available at NH state outlets?

Pardon my ignorance of distilling and selling booze, but can you distill and sell it directly on site?

To the uninformed one might think all liquor sales would need to be from state run liquor stores.

Are you exempt?

We will not be taking reservations. I will respond to texts in regards to seat availability. This Saturday there is a murder mystery dinner that had advance ticket sale which are sold out. We are closed Mon. & Tue.

I am a scotch (single malt) fan myself but vodka is much quicker to make and bottle so that’s what I started with. I intend to make a aged whiskey for future consumption. I’ve also planted 100 grapevines to meet brandy, which will also be an aged spirit.

Yes I can sell it legally right here on site.

The entire process took about four years to complete. First there was town approval, then there was federal approval, then there was state approval. Distilling illegally is a very serious crime.

Currently it will only be available over the bar here at Tavern 27, or buy the bottle from our retail shop to take home. I have a very small still and I am therefore limited on how much I can produce. Iíve also had to maneuver around some supply chain issues which has slowed production. There are a few restaurants I intend to introduce it to and will monitor pace of sales when deciding which New Hampshire liquor stores to put it in. I have also established a relationship with an online sales environment however not certain if I can keep up with local demand which is the priority.

Default Good to know!

Based on your always excellent restaurant posts, I've wanted to know your place for years, but did not want to ask in case you wanted to keep that off the board. We're on the opposite side of the lake, but I will look forward to visiting when I can. Good luck!

We ate at his place several years ago and enjoyed the small plates.

Tasty and different from the usual offerings in small town restaurants.
