Cold River Gin


Cold River Gin

Freeport, Maine is home to the Cold River Distillery. It was started by potato farmers, who after a downturn in the prices and demand of their potatoes decided to try their hand at distillation. They partnered with Chris Howe, who had over 20 years of experience in the distillation business. Sustainably farmed Maine potatoes, pure water from Cold River, and a triple distillation in a copper still, their spirits are all about quality first.

This Gluten-free Gin is made from a potato base. It takes 15 lbs of potato to make one bottle of Gin. Seven traditional botanicals are used, based on an old English Gin recipe. At 94 Proof, this is an excellent gin for putting into your Gin and Tonic, or with other traditional recipes such as a Negroni.
