“Have you ever seen a marshmallow fly?” he asked.

Outside on the pavement, he and his team scrambled to ready their contraption. Using a bicycle pump, a length of PVC tubing and lots of tape, they used air pressure from the pump to launch marshmallows, as well as their favorite projectiles — wadded tissues soaked in water.

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The owners of the Appalachian Gap Distillery are proposing to triple its 2,000-square-foot headquarters at 88 Mainelli Road in Middlebury’s industrial park. The addition would give the growing business additional warehouse space to house its whiskey barrels, more room for grain storage and a larger tasting room, and would allow for installation of a bottling line.
