Farm-to-Flask isn't a slogan, it's our operating principle.

At Maine Craft Distilling, we have an inherent understanding of what we stand for and what we stand on.  We're respectful and appreciative of the environment around us and the beauty that can be created from it.  We make thoughtful decisions, care where the things in our life come from, and gain a sense of presence from it all.

This is why we create all our products in small batches using carefully designed methods and artisinal practices.  Because we believe spirits can be made in closer harmony with their local surroundings.

That's why every bottle and can blends the land and pride of Maine with our down-to-earth, can-do approach to life and liquor.  So for those who care about craft and the story behind it....

Farm-to-Flask is not a slogan at Maine Craft Distilling; It's our Operating Principle.

  • It's liquor with a Maine twist!  Our one-of-a-kind Blueshine Wild Blueberry Liquor begins with barley from the fields of Maine.  We ferment the grain in our large wooden fermenter and then run it through our copper still.  When the "shine" is ready, we add in a bucket of Maine wild blueberries and complete the potion with a subtle helping of Maine maple syrup.  Blueshine is like a taste of blueberry pancakes...with a kick.
  • Queequeg Spiced Rum

  • The fleets of ships built on the coast of Maine supplied sailors and fisherman with the means to travel the high seas.  These adventurers landed on foreign shores where they discovered exotic spices for flavoring rum.  Inspired by their tales, we created our spiced rum, Queequeg, named for Melville's Polynesian harpooner in "Moby Dick".  With our intrepid blend of spices and fruits, Queequeg is a full-flavored, robust and decidedly un-traditional rum adventure.

  • As recently as the 1970s, the British Navy provided daily rum rations to its crews.  Ration Expedition Style Rum is a heavy libation inspired by these British naval rations.  It is distilled from molasses and aged for three months in heavily charred new oak barrels, giving it an earthy color and flavor with notes of vanilla and oak.  Mixing well with ginger beer in a mule or dark and stormy, Ration can also be enjoyed on the rocks with a squeeze of lime.
  • Alchemy Dry Gin
    Triple distilled in a pot still, Alchemy combines barley from the fields of Maine and a variety of botanicals. A spirited, floral-forward gin with a subtle, malty character. 90 Proof...

  • Alchemy is the ancient science of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.  We apply this wizardry to create our dry, triple-distilled Gin.  Combining humble ingredients - barley from the fields of Maine, botanicals including juniper, coriander and cardomom, along with lemon peel and almonds - we have crafted for you a truly magical Gin.  Distilled in a pot still, with botanicals added during the third distillation, Alchemy is a spirited, floral-forward gin with subtle, malty character.
  • Black Cap Vodka
    A crisp, clean 100% Maine barley spirit. Black Cap is triple distilled in pot stills and filtered through maple wood charcoal for a smooth feel with subtle barley notes that echo the spirit of Maine. 90 Proof...

  • As Maine settles into winter, the beautiful fields of barley rest and play host to the black-capped chickadee, our state bird.  Inspired by these lively songbirds, we created Black Cap, a crisp, clean spirit made from single-malted, Maine-grown barley.  This unique, 100% Maine spirit is triple distilled in pot stills, yielding a smooth feel and delicate flavor.  Filtered through maple charcoal from Maine's Great Woods, Black Cap has subtle barley notes that echo the spirit of Maine.
  • Fifty Stone Whiskey
    A distinctive Highlands single-malt whiskey made with floor-malted Maine-grown barley and smoked with Maine peat and local seaweed. 90 Proof...

  • Age-old custom held that 50 stones of barley made one barrel of whiskey.  Honoring that nostalgic unit of measurement, we created Fifty Stone.  Mature beyond its years, our whiskey emerges from its handmade oak barrels with a distinctive Highlands single-malt allure.  Made with floor-malted Maine-grown barley, smoked with Maine peat and locally harvested seaweed, Fifty Stone pours a wonderful shade of amber.  Notes of vanilla and caramel are balanced by dark fruit flavors and a robust spicy finish, with whispers of campfire and the sea.

  • Rum of all types were a prized commodity for the hardworking and far from home seafarers in the days of the sail.  Our crisp and bright white rum is named after Tashtego, one of the harpooners penned in the classic seafaring tale "Moby Dick".  With it we carry on the rich rum making tradition of Portland, Maine by distilling Tashtego in pot stills.
  • Whipple Tree Apple Brandy
    Made with Maine orchard apples and made to sip slow and with friends. 90 Proof...

  • As the summer comes to an end, we await the timeless tradition of picking apples.  Maine's bountiful orchards would not be possible if not for the whippletree; a simple design that has helped to shape our agriculture and landscape.  Using only locally harvested apples, we decided to evoke this same simplicity in our apple brandy.  Made to sip slow and with friends.
  • Sprigge Barrel Rested Gin
    We have created a hearty and full flavored gin that places the noble juniper front and center and then let it rest in oak barrels. 90 Proof...

  • We tie the origins of gins past with our spirits of today by using the old English spelling of the word Sprigge.  A sprigge of juniper and its berries has long been held in high regard.  It is from this that gin was born.

    Inspired by the rolling stone walls covered in juniper which define the fields and farms of Maine, we have created a hearty and full flavored gin that places the noble juniper front and center and then let it rest in oak barrels.  We invite you to enjoy a fresh, bold take on a time honored favorite.
