Westford Hill Distillers Opens to Public for the Holidays

By January 26, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Westford Hill Distillers welcomed the holidays in December by hosting an Artists’ Open Studios weekend with Tolland-based native Romanian artist Liviu Cupceancu, showcasing his handcrafted wooden sculptures and block prints alongside the Westford Hill liqueurs and spirits line at the distillery’s Ashford, Connecticut, visitors center. The 2019 holiday season was the first year that the distillery opened to the public for tastings and demonstrations of craft distillation, as well as private events, with guests purchasing spirited gift baskets and merchandise. From its 200-acre property owned by the Chatey family since 1919, Margaret and Louis Chatey founded the distillery in 1997, creating their award-winning European-style brandies, including Framboise, Pear William, Kirsch, Fraise, Poire Prisonniere, Apple Brandy, Rime Organic Vodka and Westford Gin. The brand is distributed in Connecticut for retailers and on premise by Slocum & Sons.
