Vermont Barrel Aged is located in small-town Pawlet, VT and specializes in using reclaimed whiskey barrels to create some of the most unique and boldly flavored hot sauces produced in the state. Their barrel aged magic creates something truly special!
Vermont Barrel Aged locally sources a variety of Vermont-grown hot peppers and creates a custom blended hot sauce which they then expertly age for up to three years in oak barrels. In the whiskey making business, oak barrels are used to age liquids over other woods due to their ability to interact with the liquid and exchange and enhance flavors. Similarly, these whiskey barrels infuse a unique flavor of bourbon and cider creating a hot sauce with complexity and smouldering, simmering heat.
Vermont Barrel Aged produces their hot sauces at Mach’s Market, a specialty food market in Pawlet, VT, which has become a community hub and destination for the area. They specialize in buying and selling local agricultural products, thus building a sustainable future supporting local farmers, strengthening rural communities, and helping to keep Vermont’s landscape a place we can continue to treasure.
