Maine Craft Distilling

Description

Farm-to-Flask Distilling isn’t a Slogan at Maine Craft Distilling, it’s our Operating Principle

Farm-to-flask distilling isn’t a slogan at Maine Craft Distilling, it’s our operating principle. We work in close collaboration with local farmers to carefully select agricultural products and then bring together centuries-old distilling methods, a good dose of innovation, and a whole lot of Yankee ingenuity. In the process we’ve created a line-up of creative, high-quality, craft-distilled spirits—each as unique and interesting as the landscape and seascape of Maine.

Our everyday practices include floor-malting locally sourced barley and smoking malted grain with peat from Maine’s uplands and seaweed harvested from our rocky coast. We hand craft our spirits in small batches using carefully designed processes and artisanal methods. Our hand-hewn washbacks come from Maine-grown fir and we age many of our spirits in barrels handmade of Maine white oak. Every bottle we produce blends the land and pride of Maine with our down-to-earth, can-do approach to life and liquor.

the HISTORY of MCD

Luke Davidson, Founder and CEO of Maine Craft Distilling, grew up interested in grains on a farm in the midcoast of Maine. Before Maine Craft Distilling was born, Luke spent his days in the barn with a homemade still. He began by malting grains to sell to brewers. With an excess of malted grain, he decided to test his luck and make Whiskey. Luke thought it was about time that Maine had a Whiskey created in the Scottish tradition with Maine’s natural resources. With a heavy focus on the terroir and ingredients of Maine, he teamed up with co-founder Fred Farber, and the mission to create the best whiskey began, and with it Maine Craft Distilling.
