Made from New Hampshire maple syrup from Ben's Sugar Shack, and is the only liqueur at Flag Hill that uses Neutral Apple Spirit for fortification. All apples comes from Apple Hill Farm in Concord, NH. The sweet taste of New Hampshire maple syrup blended with John Stark vodka. A unique, New Hampshire product.
Flag Hill sits on a 110 acre conservation easement which preserves the property to remain in agriculture forever. The farm switched from a dairy farm to a vineyard in 1987 with the planting of the first grapes on the property, and the winery began in 1990 with our first harvest. Years later in 2004 Flag Hill Distillery began making vodka from the highest quality apples New Hampshire has to offer.
A graduate of Penn State University, Brian Ferguson joined Flag Hill Distillery and Winery in 2013 as the new Head Distiller, and later acquired the businesses in the summer of 2015. Brian began his career as the Assistant Distiller for Finger Lakes Distilling in upstate New York, where he learned how to craft spirits working beside Thomas McKenzie, who is regarded as one of the leaders of the craft distillery industry. After his time in New York, Brian moved to Grand Cayman to take the position of Head Distiller for Cayman Spirits Co., and later moved back to the northern area of the U.S. to become Flag Hill’s Head Distiller. Since his time at Flag Hill, he has introduced new products to the Flag Hill spirit line which include rums and whiskies, and has re-focused Flag Hill’s winery to produce exceptional and award-winning wines.
The sweet, indulgent taste of golden maple syrup blended and balanced to perfection.
