After a lovely evening, in a cool space, drinking delicious Oyster Milk Stout served by wicked fun people who really love and know their stuff regrading fermenting - I stand corrected.
Fun, friendly staff, funky atmosphere and a great menu of Kombucha, Beer, Cider, Mead and the infamous 'Fire in the Hole'.
I've enjoyed this distillery's Gunpowder Rye for a number of years, but I took a tour there in June and got a sample of their new bourbon.
The folks at New England Distillery are making some great small batch spirits and the tasting room is definitely a place to stop in for some insight into their product and how its made.
This is definitely your typical craft distillery with the equipment in part of the building that used to be a garage of sorts, but the front is renovated with cute and quaint modern feels and even a foosball table!
Great place to hang out with friends, listen to a live band, celebrate an occasion, or to make a pilgrimage if you are a rum, gin, whiskey, or moonshine enthusiast.
Had a great tour and tastings at Wiggly Bridge Distillery, Mr. Woods our tour guide was fantastic and gave a lot of insights into the making of whiskey and other distilled spirits.
We lucked out with a private tour and enjoyed learning how they create their outstanding spirits.
They make a variety of wonderful cocktails using the spirits made on site and have a great deal of knowledge about what they are doing.
... and I booked the tour which started with our choice of a craft cocktail off of their menu which included cocktails made from the Wiggly Bridge Distillery whiskey, white whiskey, white rum, dark rum, vodka or gin.
We had a fascinating visit at Split Rock Stilling and learned they are the first (and only) fully organic distillery in Maine - sourcing their ingredients from local New England farms.
Their product is sold throughout Maine, but going to the source and talking directly to the masterminds behind the spirits offers much insight, stories, tales.
Their wine was fruit based-a bit sweet for me-but their gin was delicious!
The blueberry and cranberry wines were excellent, not too sweet like most.
We loved seeing where our favorite gin was born and will return on our next trip to Portland.
Highly recommend visiting this distillery when you visit Portland.
