VERMONT TOURISM NETWORK - Your Vermont Group Tour Planning Resource!

Northeast Kingdom Tasting Center

Named by Yankee Magazine’s 2015 Editor’s Choice “Best Place to Sample Local Foods” in New England!

Experience all the high quality foods and beverages produced in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom in one central market and culinary destination.  Taste and buy local ciders, spirits, cheeses and maple products.

Tour the operations of the award-winning Eden Ice Cider where your group can host a meal in the Barrel Room from Newport Ciderhouse Bar & Grill.  The Ciderhouse sources locally by working directly with farms and purveyors.  At the Tasting Bar, your group can taste Eden Ice Ciders, local Vermont spirits and local cheeses.  Try a seasonal tasting plate with drink pairings – 4 curated bites & sips.

While in Newport, a visit to the Tasting Center could also include a cruise on Lake Memphremagog crossing into Canadian waters; attend a show at a historic opera house that straddles the U.S./Canadian border, learn the history of the 19th century life in Vermont – and play at one of Vermont’s major resorts.
