Gin Tasting

Randomly stopped in because of the 'free gin tasting' sign. Ended up getting a delicious blueberry tom collins and browsing the fun little gift shop attached to the bar!

I went to the Cold River tour after seeing it on Groupon. I'm so glad I went. The distillery is a simple operation using Maine grown potatoes to make some of the best vodka I have ever tasted. There's a lovely little tasting room where they will also mix you a delicious cocktail! Our hostess for the tasting, Chris, was... More

Great place to visit. The tour was short but very informative. All hand bottled Cold River Vodka and Gin, all potato made and Kosher. Suggestion to head to groupon and find the deal, as you get to try a great cocktail and also sample their product.

My husband discovered Cold River vodka on a previous Maine trip so we were excited to check out the distillery and gift shop. Got to taste the Cold River gin, and the drinks in the shop are only $7 each! Great tee shirts, drinking glasses and trinkets to buy. Worth a quick stop if you like vodka & gin!

Not much of a tour but what it lacked in depth it made up for in detail and friendliness. The vodka was good as was the gin we tasted there,however they have severe consistency problems. We bought a bottle of gin. When we opened it at home it tasted very different, as in bad different. I have heard about the... More

We stopped in for a taste of Maine Distilleries products. Everyone talks about the Blueberry Moonshine but I was a bigger fan of the Queequeg Spiced Rum. So delicious! Saw another customer buy two bottles, so it wasn't just me. We ended up getting a bottle of Sprigge for a gin-drinking friend of ours which he thoroughly enjoyed. Needing to... More

If you like the idea of tasting local spirits you will thoroughly enjoy this. Don't expect much more than that. But the owner/workers are enthusiastic, and the spirits are both excellent and unique.

Although they were out of the Blueberry Vodka, after a huge weekend run of customers, we were able to try a sample and then they went above and beyond to find a local store that had it in stock. This is a really nice and smooth vodka. If you are a vodka or gin drinker this place is a must... More

Out for a motorcycle ride, a few friends and I stopped in to take one of the tours here. Very interesting explanation of their triple distilling process for vodka, from the potatoes to the final product. They take great care worth the crafting of their product, as I learned back home that evening, sipping some over ice.
