Science in The KITCHEN: The Science of Spirits and Distilling

Presented by The Trustees & The Cambridge Science Festival

The KITCHEN and Saxtons River Distillery present a special mixology class focused on diving into the science behind the locally made spirits produced right here in New England. We’ll learn how each different liquor is made and how the recipes and ingredients are tweaked and manipulated to create unique and traditional flavors. Attendees will taste each of Saxtons River’s most popular spirits. Plus, our master cocktail export will demo and sample innovative cocktail creations that attendees can duplicate at home

Tickets: $12 per Trustees member and $20 per nonmember. Members must bring their current member card and number. Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN. Join here.

This event is held in partnership with The Cambridge Science Festival, an organization that aims to make science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics accessible to all and - most importantly - fun!

About Saxtons River Distillery

Saxtons River Distillery was founded in 2006 by Christian Stromberg. He started out in his barn in the small town of Saxtons River creating Sapling Maple Liqueur using a family recipe for a Lithuanian honey liqueur. We will be using several of their spirits during the Mixology Class.

  • Sapling Maple Bourbon & Sapling Maple Rye Whiskies: Using locally sourced VT Maple Syrup, Christian truly created “VT in a bottle”. He then expanded his spirit line to include Sapling Maple Bourbon and Sapling Maple Rye whiskies. All three Sapling products are blended and aged to perfection. Three years in American #3 charred oak barrels for the bourbon, two for the rye and 3 months for the liqueur. Sapling uses only locally sourced, traditional wood fired dark VT Maple syrup from two local farmers or “sugarers”.
  • Perc Coffee Liqueur: Christian then teamed with local coffee roasters Mocha Joe’s to create Perc Coffee Liqueur. This very unique coffee liqueur is very simply dark roasted cold brewed coffee, neutral spirit and pure cane sugar. Perc is smooth with a clean finish without any artificial flavorings, coloring or sweeteners. Christian wanted to let natural coffee shine through without the heavy, overly sweetened consistency that you find in other coffee liqueurs. Perfect for coffee cocktails as well as cooking with it’s all natural bold dark roasted coffee taste.
  • Snowdrop Gin: Snowdrop Gin is Saxtons River Distillery’s newest release. Christian had always wanted to create a botanic American Dry gin. After three years of research and development, he and head distiller Ivan Hennessy found the perfect balance between flavor and smoothness. Snowdrop consists of eighteen botanic ingredients, it is also uniquely vacuum distilled. Vacuum distillation allows the temperature to be dropped in the still, so flavor isn’t boiled off. We create an atmospheric vacuum to draw the raw spirit through our ground botanics, capturing the flavors without any perfumey or overly floral notes. Snowdrop also has a very unique smooth finish, there isn’t the overly dry notes that people usually associate with gin.
