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


Split Rock Distilling is committed to doing things the right way. From sourcing local, wholesome organic ingredients to only selling our own handcrafted spirits, we take every chance to give back to the community that has supported us since the beginning. We bottle our authentic spirits in recycled bottles with post-consumer waste paper labels, and since April of 2018 we have stepped up our sustainable practices by offsetting a portion of our electrical usage with solar panels! Joining forces with Liberty, ME-based ReVision Energy set us up with a grid-tied system that lets us not only harvest solar electricity, but allows us to contribute our extra power back to our community, while strengthening Midcoast Maine’s power grid. 
The thirty-six solar panels on our roof in Newcastle, Maine produces over 11,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year, and offsets 9987 lbs of carbon. We further cut back on carbon emissions with an electric vehicle charger on-site! To see what our distillery’s system is producing, both today and across its lifetime, click here.

Additionally there is a FREE EV charging port on site:
