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

While we have worked tirelessly to create brands and products that are rooted in healthy farm to table relationships with certified organic producers, our number one priority has always been the community that surrounds us.  We hope that everyone remains healthy, takes care of one another and is patient and understanding in these coming days and weeks.

To do our part to contain the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 we will be temporarily closing our tasting room at Split Rock Distilling for the next two weeks (March 16th - 30th).  We will re-evaluate this as the situation progresses and keep a close eye on the guidance of health organizations and the CDC.  

Our Split Rock spirits are available at Hannaford stores and agency liquor stores across Maine and for those outside Maine online.  Our syrups and drink mixes are available in a number of grocers and at with free shipping on all orders over $15 while our tasting room is closed.  We will also continue to share cocktail and spirit-free recipes for people to enjoy while at home. 

This is an incredibly tough decision in an incredibly uncertain time, and we will make sure to take care of our staff and our community throughout it to the best of our ability.
