November 2022 marks the 5th Annual Maryland Spirits Month – a statewide celebration of Maryland’s distilling and spirits industry.

Maryland Spirits Month highlights the local businesses throughout the state that produce delightful and innovative distilled spirits. Included in this legacy list of Maryland distilleries are several locations along The Trail including Baltimore Spirits Company, McClintock Distilling Company, Miscellaneous Distillery, Old Line Spirits,  Sagamore Spirit, and Tenth Ward Distilling Company.


Exclusive Bottle Releases

During this year’s Maryland Spirits Month celebration, take a minute to explore the Spirits Of Collaboration collection of spirits. The first product released in this series, Gin, Volume 1, was produced in collaboration between Gray Wolf Spirits and McClintock Distilling Company. This gin unites Eastern and Western Maryland distillers and the flavor profile of this gin is inspired by native flavors from throughout the state.


Show Your Support

It’d be silly not to take advantage of this opportunity to support some of the most notable distilleries in the region and honor the historical significance of each establishment that fought and climbed its way out of the prohibition era. You can support your favorite distilleries by purchasing one of our passes and saving on spirits and tastings when you visit.
