Inspired by the lands their families have farmed for over eight generations, Bennington, Vermont natives Matt Cushman and Glen Sauer opened Village Garage Distillery in August 2021. Head Distiller Ryan Scheswohl is redefining Green Mountain-made spirits by using local grains and water to produce the distillery’s first releases, Village Bourbon and Village Vodka. Buy them at the distillery, throughout Vermont, and direct-to-consumer at Follow Village Garage Distillery on Instagram at @villagegaragedistillery.
