We almost drove off the road last year when we first spotted the sign for Litchfield Distillery. Whhhaaat, we have a distillery? Yes, we do!
Located at 569 Bantam Road (Route 202), this is Litchfield County’s newest (and I believe first) micro-distillery (not including those of you making moonshine in your backyard). It’s just what Litchfield County has been waiting for, along with a Trader Joes and a Zara 😉
In the video, brothers Jack and David Baker (owners of the distillery), and head distiller, James McCoy, give us a tour of the 15,000-square-foot facility. And of course, we have to sample the 3 handcrafted spirits they’re currently producing in small batches; gin, bourbon whiskey, and double barreled bourbon whiskey.
(sip, Lora, sip!)
