Frederick Residents and business owners are excited for the distillery to open.

“I have been watching the progress in the distillery over the past year and it is incredible to see the transformation. I am really looking forward to trying their signature spirits after seeing the effort the owners have put into this business.” – Allison Levitt, owner, Bare Bites Dog Treats

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:

Ø  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

Ø  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.

Ø  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.

McClintock Distilling To Open In Downtown Frederick

Craft Distillery Has Secured New Location on Carroll Creek

Frederick, MD, July 9, 2015 McClintock Distilling has begun renovation of the historic building at 35 South Carroll Street in downtown Frederick. The owners of McClintock Distilling plan to open the craft distillery this fall, providing hand-crafted spirits made from scratch at the Frederick location. Tours and tastings will be available to the public and the venue will operate as an event space for the community as well.

“We are so excited to start our build-out and begin the time-honored tradition of distilling spirits. Our mission from the start has been to bring innovation to the industry and to invest in the community I grew up in. We are very thankful to the City of Frederick for being so supportive of our efforts to bring distilling back to Western Maryland.” –Tyler Hegamyer, Owner, McClintock Distilling

The distillers will launch with a craft gin using Appalachian-inspired botanicals as well as a sustainably sourced white whiskey. McClintock will also be producing a bourbon and Irish-style whiskey that will be barrel-aged on site and will be available for sale in several years.

The new distillery will feature an expansive tasting room and production area. The 5,000 square foot building will also be available for booking events and receptions. Local residents are looking forward to the launch and the owners are looking forward to contributing to Frederick’s thriving small business community.

“I can’t wait to have a distillery in our city. I love drinking all the craft beer that is made here and it will be nice to have another business that represents our city and offers something fun and interesting to do on the weekends.” – Kerry Johnson, Frederick Resident

The City of Frederick amended the city code in December of 2014 to allow small craft distilleries in the downtown area, paving the way for McClintock’s new location. McClintock Distilling will join other Maryland distilleries including Lyon Distilling, Blackwater Distilling and the Baltimore Distilling Company as some of the first distilleries in the state since prohibition.
