About us

We named Split Rock Distillery for a dirt road we travel often—the shortcut between our two homes. It’s the only shortcut we’ve ever taken to bring you Maine’s first organic spirits. When we founded Split Rock, we promised ourselves we would handcraft our spirits the right way. That meant the long way: authentic, small batch grain to glass, selling no spirit not our own. We spent evenings and weekends building a distillery and tasting room by hand in an old barn on historic Route One. We sourced organic grains and fruits from the fields of farmers we count as friends. We demanded organic sugars and drew waters so pure locals still harvest winter ice. We refined our fermentations again and again to showcase the unique signatures of our still. And through it all, we gathered knowledge, inspiration, a helping hand and an honest opinion from other distillers, family and friends, and every stranger fairly met. There is a real split rock on Split Rock Road and we still drive past it almost every day—a rough plug of granite, cracked open long ago by time or skill (or a little of both) to reveal an unexpected smoothness within. That is the spirit of Split Rock. —MATT AND TOPHER

TWO EASY WAYS TO BUY ONLINE:

Organic STRAIGHT Bourbon Whiskey - 88 Proof - $64.99

Barrels : 30 gallon new char 3 white oak 
Age: 3 years
Mashbill : 60% Corn, 20% Wheat, 15% Barley, 5% Rye 
Organic Single Barrel Cask Strength STRAIGHT Bourbon Whiskey - 122 Proof - $94.99

Barrels : 30 gallon new char 3 white oak 
Age: 3 years
Mashbill : 60% Corn, 20% Wheat, 15% Barley, 5% Rye 
Organic Bourbon Whiskey - 88 Proof - $52.99 
Split rocks, whether worn by water, cracked by fire or pried apart by a mason with wedges and shims, open to reveal an unexpected smoothness within. Every bottle of SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC BOURBON does the same. 
Barrels : 15 gallon new char 3 white oak 
Age: 18 months
Mashbill : 60% Corn, 20% Wheat, 15% Barley, 5% Rye 
Organic White Whiskey - 100 Proof - $41.99  
While water takes ages to split a rock and reveal the smoothness within, a mason can swiftly do the same with wedges, shims and skill. We handcraft SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC WHITE WHISKEY in small batches from pure, premium ingredients in the spirit of the mason: carving clear, clean flavors from the corn, warmth from the barley, and smoothness from the wheat—and savoring each sip in the here and now.
Organic Vodka - 80 Proof - $32.99 
Water can split a rock over time, as can a mason with wedges and shims. It takes nature or craftsmanship (or a bit of both) to break a rough boulder and find the smoothness within. We handcraft SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC VODKA from premium natural ingredients for the same reason: you can’t carve out such clear, clean flavor any other way.

Organic Blueberry Vodka - 80 Proof - $39.99  

Native Maine blueberries have their roots in the rocks. They thrive in the northern barrens—stark fields of low bush and bracken studded with slabs of granite split by glaciers long ago. . We steep hand raked wild blueberries in the clear, clean flavors of our grain-to-glass spirits to naturally sweeten each sip. SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC BLUEBERRY VODKA is midsummer on the Maine coast in a bottle.

Organic Horseradish Vodka - 80 Proof - $39.99  
Water can split a rock over time, as can a mason with wedges and shims—but ancient miners used fire to crack open boulders and reveal the treasures within. We handcraft SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC HORSERADISH VODKA from premium natural ingredients with the same intent: to carve out clear, clean flavors with a carefully calibrated—and absolutely addictive—burst of heat.
Organic 150 Vodka - 150 Proof - $54.99  
Water can split a rock over time, as can a mason with wedges and shims. It takes nature or craftsmanship (or a bit of both) to break a rough boulder and find the smoothness within. We handcraft SPLIT ROCK ORGANIC ONE-FIFTY VODKA from premium natural ingredients for the same reason: you can’t carve out such clear, clean flavor any other way. 
Organic Gin - 90 Proof - $39.99 
Along Maine’s rocky shores, you’ll often see a hardy tree, rugged floral or aromatic herb take root in the splits and spaces between the stones. We handcraft each small batch of Split Rock Organic Gin the same way: grafting fresh botanical notes to the clear, clean flavors of our authentic, grain-to-glass spirits. 
Organic Barrel Rested Gin - 90 Proof - $45.99  
Along Maine’s rocky shores, you’ll often see a hardy tree, rugged floral or aromatic herb take root in the splits and spaces between the stones. We handcraft each small batch of Split Rock Organic Organic Barrel Rested Gin the same way: grafting fresh botanical notes to the clear, clean flavors of our authentic, grain-to-glass spirits. Then we let it age in our own whiskey barrels until it's smooth enough to sip-and strong enough to hold its own.
