Located in Windsor, Vermont, in the same Artisan Park area as Harpoon Brewery, Simon Pearce, Vermont Farmstead Cheese, and Great River Outfitters, SILO is situated in a newly built barn distillery. The space is uniquely designed to support sustainable production as well as offer the public a full tour, tasting and cocktail experience, inside and out. Sustainability is part of their process; recycling the water used throughout distillation, and sending spent grains to farmers to use for feed.
The two-story building is rich with the smells of pine and cooking grains, offering beautiful acoustics for local musicians against a backdrop of the stainless steel and copper of SILO’s custom German distillation equipment. Their tall column produces vodka and their short column produces more flavorful spirits such as whiskey, brandy, and Solstice. Everything is done right in their barn distillery. The team is the heart of SILO. There are 3 stages of spirit collection, called cuts: heads, hearts, and tails. At SILO, they’re all hearts, all day.
