January 24th: One Day—Two Releases at Maine Craft Distilling

Jan 24, 2015 @ 12:00pm   Events, Member Events, News & Events

Sprigge Barrel Rested Gin and Tashtego White Rum, the latest additions
to Maine Craft Distilling’s lineup of locally crafted spirits, will be
available for sale and tasting beginning Saturday January 24 at
MCD’s 101 Fox Street, Portland tasting room as well as its recently
opened tasting room in Freeport at 7 Mill Street.

Sprigge is a barrel rested, or aged, version of Maine Craft
Distilling’s popular  Alchemy Dry Gin.  Maine Craft Distilling began
resting the gin in used, heavily charred oak barrels in the early
summer. The oak barrels originally contained the craft distiller’s
Fifty Stone Whiskey. The combination of used whiskey barrel and
Alchemy Gin creates a hearty, full flavored spirit combining hints of
juniper with the barrel richness of vanilla.

In keeping with Portland’s rum tradition, MCD is releasing Tashtego
White Rum which, like MCD’s spiced rum Queequeg, takes its name from a
harpooner in the Melville classic “Moby Dick.” A crisp, bright
spirit, Tashtego honors hardworking seafarers who are far from home.

story is centered around ideas of optimism, hard work, and promise. No
place embodies these ideals better than our coasts and our seas. The
artworks in The Coast & The Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America
are significant in that they themselves helped create this narrative,
and continue to inform the future the direction of the American Dream.
