It’s no secret we love all things American made, and this goes for libations as well. Tonight, Room & Board Boston is holding an event to celebrate New England, which includes beverages from SILO Distillery. Not only is SILO known for handcrafted, artisan spirits but they are also committed to sustainability and preserving natural resources.
We had the opportunity to connect with Erin Bell, SILO’s General Manager, to learn more about the Vermont-based brand.
How did SILO Distillery start? American Crafted Spirits and SILO Distillery were established with one goal in mind: utilizing Vermont’s natural bounty to create premium, locally sourced and truly handcrafted spirits. Our brand’s mission is about much more than a trend or a sales pitch, but becoming a company that can provide a transparent, one-of-a-kind experience to our consumers in both taste and a sense of place. We use our high-end, German-engineered still to produce spirits that are not neutral in flavor, but in fact celebrate the natural ingredients we use to distill them. Each product has been modeled to have the smoothest profile and the best taste, without ever using chemicals or synthetic additives.
What inspires you? We are inspired by our neighbors, families and local providers to make our connection with our state and environment an intimate and sustainable contract that not only supports our own pursuits, but those around us as well.
What’s your favorite part of your job? It’s hard to list just one thing, but at the top would be the large assortment of people and personalities that come to our door! Our tasting room has become a way station for visitors from all over the country, even internationally, to offer not only priceless feedback on our products, but also to share stories not far off from our own – stories of people taking control of the products they choose to bring in to their homes and share with others, and how they have prioritized the relationship between community, environment and quality. We are provided daily with the opportunity to share all the ins and outs of our trade and let our spirits tell their own stories.
So, who’s thirsty?
