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

    Excellent: Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    Posted by Aldo on Nov 9th 2020

    Very smooth, excellent flavor. We really like Split Rock's regular Bourbon Whiskey, too. And we're fans of Split Rock's Barrel Rested Gin, too.

    Straight Boubon

    Im already a fan of the original organic bourbon, but the straight just takes it to another level. Stronger, bolder, but not harsh. Had a Manhattan and it was great, but with just a large ice cube and a splash of water it was just as good.

    Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    The bourbon is excellent. It is very smooth and I found it to have a slightly sweet or caramel taste. I’d also like to praise the personnel and the organized order and pick up process. Like the bourbon, it was smooth.

    Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    I never thought that I would ever find myself sipping a bit of bourbon at the end of a day. Then I tried Split Rock Distilling’s Straight Bourbon and it is so good and smooth. It’s very special and a wonderful treat to bring home from Maine to Massachusetts. Their blueberry vodka is pretty special as well. Cheers everyone and stay well.

    Excellent, smooth taste. I am not a Bourbon person but wanted to try this one because the Gin and Vodka are great. Very enjoyable taste.
