After 15 years as an engineer in Steel, Automotive, Aircraft and Fiber Optics I decided it was time to pursue my own business. Following recipes and traditions passed on from my from my family I started my distillery on the banks of the Saxtons River in Cambridgeport, Vermont. In 2006 I was working out of my lightly heated barn, making every bottle myself as well as trying to market and promote throughout the Northeast. When the distillery moved to Brattleboro in 2011 my family and I soon followed and now reside in Brattleboro as well.
MY FAMILY FLED CZARIST-CONTROLLED LITHUANIA IN 1906…
They strongly desired to assimilate into American society, but kept alive familiar Lithuanian traditions and customs, including making flavorful liqueurs. The tradition of crafting fine liqueurs has been passed from generation to generation, and we are pleased to share our unique liqueur with you.
Saxtons River Distillery Vermont spirits combine old-world heritage with the flavor of Vermont. I gained appreciation for maple syrup while living in Vermont and visiting the sugar houses of friends in spring. Understanding the amount of work required to produce quality maple syrup has given me profound respect for the final product. With a nod to family tradition and the tradition of Vermont, I offer you the unique taste of Saxtons River Distillery spirits."
