Coming up this Saturday (12/19), we're doing a trunk show with Alden because we've had a lot of folks express interest in figuring out their sizing. We've got our Alden rep, Steve, coming with a few additional stock styles in addition to our core stock.
And, because we're like that, we've recruited a fantastic gin company - Caledonia Spirits - to pour drinks all day while we're fitting you into some new shoes.
Here's what they have to say about themselves:
We were founded in 2010, by farmer and bee keeper Todd Hardie. Before Barr Hill, Todd had a commercial honey and elderberry business called Honey Gardens that received national distribution placement in Whole Foods after a chance encounter with a buyer at a Phish concert in the Northeast Kingdom in 2004. He was able to sell honey gardens to and establish the distillery.
He founded Caledonia Spirits (Barr Hill) in the town of Hardwick, Vermont, located in the Northeast Kingdom. This rural area is rooted in farming and agriculture, and our brand has a strong connection to the landscape and neighboring farmers. Neighbors artisanal friends include Jasper Hill cheese, and Hill Farmstead brewery.
We have three spirits currently on the market, one hundred percent distilled from honey Barr Hill Vodka, our Vermont sourced corn base distillate Barr hill gin finished with raw honey and the only additional botanical of juniper. Tom cat is our reserve gin aged in New American oak barrels for six months.
Our Whiskey program will be rolling out soon, and we also have an elderberry cordial that will be back on the market with the next elderberry crop. Todd our founder is focusing on farming and growing rye for our whiskey, and also elderberries. Ryan Christiansen is our distiller.
The next vision of the company is going into Vermont produced barrels. We are currently teaming with a local cooper and making our own Vermont white oak barrels!! We are all excited.
As a bonus, we're throwing in a pair of Alden shoe trees with every pair for the whole weekend.
Doors are open 11am to 6pm, and we hope to see you there.
TLDR: Get drunk, play with shoes.
