Saxtons River Distillery Acquires Building For Expansion
Brattleboro, October 3, 2018
-- Saxtons Distillery is planning a major expansion with the purchase of a 13,000 square foot facility off of Putney Road (Route 5) in Brattleboro this month. This move marks a long-awaited expansion and will provide the distillery with the space needed to produce and age more of their celebrated products. Founder Christian Stromberg sees the move as an opportunity to take his business to the next level.
“We have been limited in our ability to produce and distribute in higher volumes due to space restrictions. Our well-known Sapling line continues to grow, and the growth of our newest Snowdrop Gin is really pushing our capacity in our current location. We will now have the room required to introduce new products, increase distribution in current markets as well as seek out new markets.” Christian Stromberg, Founder
Saxtons will continue to grow their product line but without compromising the quality they are known for. This is an exciting time for the company and for Brattleboro, as the distillery’s growth brings more jobs and tourism to the area. The distillery will continue to operate their showroom on Route 30 in Brattleboro as well as a grand tasting room on 155 Chickering Drive featuring their full product line along with a range of local and related products.
Saxtons Distillery produces Sapling Vermont Maple Rye, Maple Bourbon and Maple Liqueur, Perc Coffee Liqueur and Snowdrop Gin. The multiple-award winning Sapling line uses locally-produced maple, Perc Coffee Liqueur features rich organic coffee, and Snowdrop Gin is a uniquely complex gin that is vacuum distilled to preserve and enhance the delicate flavors of the 18 botanicals used in distillation. Snowdrop has experienced tremendous growth since its introduction in 2016. It was recently awarded 93 points and a Top 100 Spirit in the World by Wine Enthusiast in 2017, making it their highest rated gin from New England. The distillery is an independently owned business operating since 2006.
