At Dunc’s Mill, we know that true craft spirits take time, care and effort – you get out what you put in.
That’s why we try to do everything the right way.
We have one goal:
To create from scratch the highest quality spirits that can be produced. We do every step of the process by hand – fermenting organic evaporated cane juice, distilling and refining to pure unfiltered alcohol, infusing our handmade Vermont flavors and putting it in the bottle, all in house.
It takes a little longer, and we sweat a bit more – but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Because when we finally sit back at the end of the day, we can pour ourselves a glass of the genuine article – and there’s no higher pedigree than hard work and true craftmanship.
Dunc’s Mill is New England’s premiere artisanal rum company and Vermont’s oldest continually operating distillery. Located in Barnet, adjacent to St. Johnsbury, the Mill is nestled deep within hundreds of acres of maple, cedars and pines in Vermont’s stunning Northeast Kingdom.
In 1998, a downburst – Vermont’s version of a tornado – laid down scores of century-old hemlocks. A neighbor called with the news, and Duncan (working at the time in Singapore) flew back to survey the damage. With all the fallen trees, along with the beautiful sugar maples left standing, an idea was born. From that, the first batch of our maple spirits was distilled – from scratch and by hand.
Still today, every batch of our rums are handcrafted from start to finish by our founder and Master Distiller, Duncan Holaday, using custom-built stripping and fractionating stills. Dunc’s Mill is dedicated to creating artisanal spirits of the highest quality; all of our products are handmade, organic, and made entirely from scratch using only the finest ingredients.
