Meet Scott & Jessica

It all began with a college business plan to turn Maine potatoes into super-premium vodka.  We met in 2002 while pursuing engineering degrees in upstate NY.  In 2006 we moved back to Maine and got married at the family camp on Grand Lake in Aroostook County.  Together we own and operate the Northern Maine Distilling Company in Brewer, ME.
