Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The producer describes this gin made from raw honey as ’dancing the line between an Old Tom and a London Dry style.’ We’d say it edges closer to Old-Tom gins, thanks to its surprising sweetness and understated juniper. Look for notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla, white pepper, and a whisper of spicy cinnamon. A touch viscous, it’s unusually mouth coating for a gin. (Nov 2013)
"The gin is a celebration of our special connection to the land. We use pure grain spirits as a canvas to showcase juniper berry and raw northern honey. Added just before bottling, the raw honey imparts unique floral qualities that vary with season and blossom. Our distillery, on the banks of the Lamoille River in the Northeast Kingdom, is rooted in the agriculture of Vermont. Hardwick, Caledonia Country, is a community inspired by farms where the production of milk, cheese, timber, grains, honey, seeds, and herbs are part of our lives and help define our place.

|Originating exclusively from the birthplace of tequila itself, and borne of a desire to create an authentic and high quality tequila rich in heritage and tradition, Arta Tequila has created a line of pure, small-batch, single-estate tequilas.
Our Master Distiller learned the skills of producing tequila from his father who, in turn, learned from his father. The single estate that produces 100% of the agave for our tequilas has been in the same family for over 250 years. We go to great lengths to find unique 150 liter barrels, smaller than other producers, to create an aging environment that further infuses our tequila with the subtleties of the wood. Even our bottles are handcrafted from recycled glass.
These unique characteristics stand Arta Tequila apart as a singular producer of premium, 100% Weber blue agave tequila.
