Owner description: Come by for a free tour and tasting! Portland Maine's first distillery since Prohibition, New England Distilling produces premium small batch spirits using local ingredients. 100% of our spirits are mashed, fermented, and distilled at our distillery. Our traditional pot still imparts unique flavors, and we think you will taste the difference.

A good visit. While the tastes are subjective, I did enjoy their Gunpowder Rye Whiskey.

Tour was typical but with was interesting to see the grains.

A good little startup, better than other little craft distilleries and the best in Portland area.

Stopped here during part of a brew bus tour -- so glad we did. Ned was very informative - can tell he is passionate about his distilling. Walked us through the steps of distilling, including samples of barley, different examples to test our sniffers to determine when a product is ready, and of course tasting samples!
