Already home brewers that prided themselves on impressing friends, acquaintances and strangers with a pint of their latest beers, Appalachian Gap Distillery founders Chuck Burkins and Lars Hubbard attended a weekend distilling class in Geneva, N.Y. One simple retreat in 2010 transformed a hobby into an obsession for Chuck and Lars.
They quickly got to work creating a line of unique craft spirits in their solar-powered distillery. Inspired by a Swedish folk tradition, Kaffekask, one of Appalachian Gap’s first craft spirits, is an aromatic white whiskey distilled through freshly ground coffee. Searching for something new? Try Papilio for a singular craft spirit experience. Appalachian Gap’s self-described “Vtquila,” Papilio is the product of fermenting blue agave nectar from Mexico and Vermont’s own dark maple syrup.
