In a County known for its deeply rooted appreciation of fine fermented beverages, Frederick County’s new craft distilleries are taking advantage of the “farm-to-glass” movement and a reversal in old Maryland prohibition laws.
In 2014, the City of Frederick also amended their code to allow small craft distilleries downtown. As a result, distilleries are opening at record rates, reviving old processes, using locally-grown products and developing new spirits that preserve the rich history of age-old farming traditions.
