We stumbled across this distillery on 324 Fore Street in Portland Maine. I think it is fairly new and we decided to try the Gin. It was so flavorful with fruit overtones and crisp and a lot of other flavors you can't really put your finger on. This gin is great with tonic and lime but equally... read more

Go do a tasting, beautiful small set up and the gin and home made "smashes" are exceptional. Beautiful place.

We visited Sweetgrass for their "after 5 tour". Our group expected the "normal" private tasting experience, that is, a cheese and chocolate plate paired with appropriate wines. This was anything but that. We arrived at 6 and were greeted by Constance and Keith. We were given a tasting of our choice of their blueberry wines. We then began our tour... More

We visit Sweetgrass to refurbish our supply of wines and liquors. There are so many good products, not sure which ones to mention. My favorite is probably Three Crow Rum, however, their gin is excellent as are their wines. I enjoy their smoked blueberry and their cranberry smash. For a small fee, you can sample a variety of wines and... More

Wine tasting quite reasonable *and each taster gets to keep the wine glass). I've purchased several wines but haven't purchased any of their renowned spirits or vanilla. A good place to visit.

Great gin and bourbon that will be ready in a while. Great space with lots of Maine made products! Beautiful setting and lots of outdoor space for a picnic; weather permitting! It is Maine after all!

Stopped at the Portland location for a tasting. Very curious about their products. Turns out we were not fans of their wines or spirits. Which was okay, since it's a taste thing. Our big disappointment was our server. Just pouring does NOT make for a good experience. No explanation of the wines or any background whatsoever. Someone should look into... More

This was the first stop of our fall wine tour in Maine and this place far exceeded our expectations. A charismatic distillery with great tasting wines and gin. I called one day prior to alert them that we were celebrating my girlfriend's 30th birthday and they were sure to personalize our tasting and make her feel very special. A hidden... More

I try to go to Maine at least once a year and I always try to stop in here for a tasting. The last time I visited they had revamped the tasting room which now overlooks the property. A nice sampling of local fruit wines the blueberry red and cranberry smash being my favorites. As for spirits both gins were... More

Delightful stop at this out of the way farm on a beautiful fall Sunday drive. For $2.50 a tasting of your pleasure and a free take home glass a great way to turn a drive in the country into an autumn adventure. Half the fun is getting there the other half is enjoying the wide range of offerings and the... More
