About Us

From the 1700’s, onwards

Long before anyone in places like Kentucky or Tennessee thought of filling their first barrel of Whiskey, Southern Marylanders such as Basil Hayden, Henry Wathen and even the Jesuit Priests at Newtown Neck were busy perfecting their Whiskey recipes and their craft of distilling.

We are combining the best of what those early Marylander’s used with extraordinary efforts to be environmentally responsible to bring you the best Whiskeys and Bourbons possible.

WHAT WE OFFER

Maryland’s Bourbon Distillery

We will be honest, there is an allure for quick cash by buying someone else’s discount products, bringing them in to our distillery in large plastic totes and dumping it in to bottles. From there, we could have put labels on them and called those things our own. We could use clever terms and fancy words to mask the fact the product was made by a large corporate distillery. Many distilleries do this, it is 100% legal and an accepted practice. It just isn’t us.

There are reasons each of our batches taste just a little different. There are reasons the proof on each of those batches is different. There are reasons some of the labels are a little crooked or there’s an air bubble. We do it all from the farm, we truly do it by hand one single batch at a time and we do it all for you. We are family, we are friends, and we are neighbors. You deserve our best efforts, and we will always strive to bring them to you.

America’s Bourbon Trail Starts Here!

Bourbon & Whiskey

Starting with our farm-raised corn, we add a bit more rye in our products than most distilleries and let it ferment for a few days. From there we double-distill the mash to produce a crisp and flavorful spirit. If we’re making our Straight Bourbon or Rye, it’ll go in to a new charred oak barrel. If we’re making  Moll Dyer Cinnamon Whiskey it’ll go in to one of our used charred oak barrels.

USS Constellation Rum

Rum sounds easy to make; molasses, water, and yeast. How hard could that possibly be? Turns out, its pretty hard to make a good Rum. There are hundreds of types of molasses (or molasses-like products) being produced today along with more 500 suitable strains of yeast.  A LOT of research went in to designing our Rum formula. When all was settled, the molasses we chose is the highest grade produced by Domino right in Baltimore. After it’s been double distilled, we age it in our used bourbon barrels onboard the USS Constellation in Baltimore harbor for 20 months. The gentle rocking on the daily tide provides more “barrel circulation” for the Rum as well as oxidation to smoothen out this rum. We age it in our Rickhouse for another three years or so. Nothing to this product but molasses, water and a used Bourbon barrel – It’s a smooth Rum that drinks like a Bourbon!
