No whiskey! No whiskey! No whiskey! No whiskey! Said they would have it after summer is over. Pourer was disinterested after I asked about the whiskey.

We were given a recommendation to visit this winery/distillery. It is a small business close to Commercial St so we decided to give it a try. The cost is $5 for 4 tasting which can included wine, gin or rum, some flavored with Maine blueberries....More

Great little 'hole in the wall' place on Fore St near the Customs Building. Wonderful tastings with unusual berry wines. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, but stock up because they don't sell these wonderful wines in local stores, only here and at their farm.

Stopped in at their Portland tasting room. The lady working was very nice and knowledgeable. The blueberry and cranberry wines were excellent, not too sweet like most. We left with a bottle of blueberry bitters which makes for a new twist on Manhattans.

One of the better gins, if not the best! Cold River Gin! Their wines have blueberries--but wait--and are not cloyingly sweet/berry-like. Be brave!
