Raw Honey+Raw Honey Gin + Elderberry= good friendship

January 30, 2013

Barr Hill, located up in Hardwick, Vermont, (up in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont) is a magical place.  There is a certain terroir of the products that hail from this region.  From ice cider from Eden,(frozen and pressed apples) to fruit syrups (Sumptuous Syrups of Vermont) to the gorgeously potent Jasper Hill Cheese, the taste of the place is quite apparent. 

Imagine my delight when I discovered several more soulfully made products that sent my heart and taste buds into the veritable outer orbit!

These products that come from Barr Hill are their honey distilled Vodka, Gin and Elderberry Cordial.  Then there is the raw honey.  What is raw honey?  It is unheated, pure, unpasteurized and unprocessed honey.

Raw honey retains all its potency as a healing medicine and it tastes great too in gin and vodka.  Good thing Caledonia Spirits uses raw honey in their highly individualistic products!  Not only do they taste good, but they are also good for you.

I was touched deeply by the mission statement of Caledonia Spirits as shared by my friend Todd Hardie, the pragmatic gentleman who shared some of his time last night. 

Thank you Todd for your humble friendship and great kindness.
