WCSH has aired an interview with Luke Davidson, head distiller at Maine Craft Distilling.

“We are a farm to flask distillery.  We are using as much of the Maine grain and other products as we can and putting them into the bottle,” said Davidson.

Their Blueberry Moonshine, which will hit store shelves soon, provides a glimpse into how they hope to help Maine farmers find new markets for their products.

“So we are using a Maine grown barley to make a white spirit that is then infused with our region’s blueberries and sweetened just a little bit with some maple syrup,” he explained.  “It is sort of like liquid pancakes with a kick.”

The new distillery opened for business this week in East Bayside.
