Craft Distillery to Open to the Public for Tours and Tastings
McClintock Distilling is opening for business on December 3, 2016 for tours and tastings. To commemorate the grand opening, the tasting room and distillery will be open free of charge from Noon to 8:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Visitors to the distillery will be treated to a half ounce sampling flight of the initial core products from the McClintock line, which include Epiphany Vodka, Forager Gin and Maryland-Heritage White Whiskey.
The space is also open for wedding and event rentals and has been fully customized to suit events of any variety. The historic 105 year old warehouse at 35 South Carroll Street was renovated to modernize the space while highlighting the historic aesthetics of the old mechanic’s garage.

McClintock Distilling only uses organic grains and the highest quality ingredients for all of their products. All of the liquors are made from whole grains that are milled at the distillery using a stone-burr mill to preserve essential enzymes that give the spirits a unique and superior flavor. Here is a preview of the core products but make sure to stop by Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4, to learn more and try these exciting new spirits:
- Epiphany Vodka: Distilled to 95% abv from organic Northern Italian wheat and re-distilled, filtered and blended in-house for a superior taste and smooth finish.
- Forager Gin: Uses a one of a kind botanical mix inspired by native plants found in the Appalachian wilderness. Forager gin is vapor infused to fully extract the essential oils for a lighter, more flavorful gin.
- Maryland Heritage White Whiskey: A rye whiskey aged 24 hours in an oak barrel using a historic mash bill that was commonplace in Western Maryland distilleries pre-prohibition.
