Savor an apple pie and bourbon pairing

There’s no better way to enjoy the bounties of Litchfield County in the fall than by crafting your own cheddar-cheese topped apple pie, straight from the source. Then punch it up with an unusual pairing: super smooth, small-batch local bourbon.

The Experience

At a nearby orchard, the air is filled with the distinctly sweet smell of ripe, red apples ready for the picking. Fill a basket to the brim, then head through the rolling hills to the historic Arethusa Farms. Taste fresh farmstead cheeses, made exclusively with milk from the 300 dairy cows roaming the open pastures. Select your favorite cheddar, then it’s on to tour a local distillery and sip the area’s best bourbons. Back at the Inn, join our pastry chef in creating a fresh apple pie from the day’s bounty. While the pie cools, hand-churn old-fashioned vanilla ice cream, flavored with the bourbon of your choosing, for the crowning touch.
