“Maine is the perfect place to be for the end of the world,” a friend once told me. “Everything happens in Maine, but it might take five years to get there.”
We take no shame in that, indeed, from where we stand, it’s a badge of honor. It means that up here in Maine, we are un-buffeted by the fickleness of fad and fashion, that our values of Industry and Thrift and Tradition and Heritage stay un-fooled around with.

In our historic towns and villages, the unspoiled bounty from land and sea and our finely hewn libations are modern culinary treasures—they have become our handshake to the world. So it is with one foot firmly planted in the past and our eyes trained on contemporary excellence that we offer our Rye, Bourbon, Vodka, Gin and Rum.

Housed in a renovated old brick train shed built a century ago, our unique tasting room is located on Thompson’s Point along the Fore River in Portland Maine. Featuring a full selection of cocktails, retail items (including bottles!) and guided tastings. The Stroudwater Distillery tasting room is next door to Bissel Brothers Brewery and Cellardoor Winery and across the street from Thompson’s Point concerts.

I had the Monk's Retreat, it was well balanced but strong. Service was friendly and prompt. Small but nice sunny place to sit outside. Pretty empty inside around 3:30 on Sunday except for a family eating in a booth with kids. Good stop before or after the cyrptozologology museum. Ample parking but paid. We parked in lot by trail for a few hours and didn't get tickted.

Conveniently located across from the Children's Museum, we popped in for lunch with our 2 children and were extremely happy with this place! The staff was friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! Our kids loved the Mac & Cheese and large pretzel and we loved the Loaded Tots and Jalapeno Poppers. The bartender made our kids a cute mocktail, and the Windigo was excellent. Thanks Chef Adam!

The cocktails were great (nice glasses and garnishes, good attention to detail) and the bartender, Jake, was super friendly and really knew his stuff and made good recommendations and customized the experience as he read us perfectly as cocktail art enthusiasts. The special mac n' cheese with pulled pork was excellent and the chef was obviously proud of it as should have been.

There are no bad choices at Stroudwater. The cocktails are consistently creative and often divinely inspired. Bartender Jake is the man to see. My current favorite is the Guava Girl, but, honestly, I’ve been a fan of this distillery since they opened several years ago and have yet to order a drink I didn’t enjoy. The food here is easy to devour. Chef Adam makes a fantastic BBQ brisket & his burgers are truly delicious.

Tasty cocktails, and a fun environment. The Trivia, on Thursdays, will humble you. Cheers to the great staff at SD!

I've been to the distillery a few times now, but discovered it a couple years back on a road trip to Maine with friends. Now whenever I stop in Portland I make sure to grab a bottle to take back to Mass. The atmosphere was really clean and cozy in a deconstructed kind of way. The staff are really kind and always offer up an honest opinion on recommendations. Great spirits all around from a local distillery!
