If you happen to be anywhere near southern Maine on Saturday, May 19, you’re not going to want to miss this distilling milestone…
Not only is May 19 World Whisky Day, but York, Maine’s Wiggly Bridge Distillery will be filling its 500th barrel.
The distillery is planning a celebration to commemorate the milestone—huge for a small batch craft distillery in Maine. Ticket holders will be able to sign the barrel and their name will be entered in for the chance to seal the barrel by hammering in the bung after the barrel is filled.
Attendees are eligible to receive one of the first 12 bottles from the barrel when it is released in 2022. Along with celebratory cocktails, the celebration includes rolling the barrel to the Wiggly Bridge Rickhouse where the barrel will mature four years.
