Dirty Water Distillery blends old with new, tradition with innovation, and support local whenever they can.
Starting with three products in 2013 and adding ten more by the end of 2016. Dirty Water Distillery products include:
Vodka: Straight vodka as well as infusions. Infused vodkas use real ingredients such as clementines, horseradish, and Speedwell Coffee, to name a few, to get a clean, true flavor in a clear spirit.
Rum: White and an amber. Rums are full-bodied, not harsh or biting, and have been described as “true” rum.
Gin: This style can be overwhelmingly “piney,” but Dirty Water aims to re-introduce the “fruity, floral” side of this wonderful spirit. Dirty Water Gin has a nice big nose, but is light on the palate with subtle notes of cranberries (sourced from Sandwich).
Whiskey: Single malt uses barley from Valley Malt in Hadley. It is sweet, smooth, and clean and has been complimented as comparable to established “old world” single malts.
Distilled Spirits: Dirty Water takes finished beers from local breweries and transforms them into spirits (whiskey, for all intents and purposes) with malt complexity and hop notes.
Liqueur: Dirty Water's most notable liqueur is their spiced honey liqueur. A family recipe from Lithuania they frist mull local honey (Billerica, Pembroke, Rochester) with ten ingredients and mix with our neutral spirit to create a well balanced and wonderfully satisfying liqueur.
So shop local and see how these spirits are made - facinating!
