Saxtons River Distillery makes locally sourced, small-batch spirits with an emphasis on maple liquors. Its products are sold across the United States and include Sapling Vermont Maple Liqueur, Sapling Maple Bourbon, Sapling Maple Rye, Perc Coffee Liqueur and the critically acclaimed Snowdrop Gin.

VEDA provided financing to help Saxtons River Distillery purchase and renovate a new facility off Putney Road in Brattleboro. The new building will help the company expand its operations and open a new tasting room. People’s United Bank and the Windham County Economic Development Program also provided financing for the project.
