Visit Massachusetts craft distillers and experience unique and broad flavor palettes, tapping back to a long-rooted tradition in the Bay State. Check websites for tasting room hours or to make an appointment. Massachusetts' commercial distilling history is rich, dating back to pre-Revolutionary War times. The local industry brought wealth in the 1700s, when Boston was home to more than 25 distilleries and Massachusetts was the country's leading rum exporter. Massachusetts craft distillers are on the rebound and now number almost 20, with many sourcing local ingredients. For an authentic experience, visit their tasting rooms and sample craft bourbon, gin, liqueur, moonshine, rum, vodka and whiskey products, and meet the owners! Check out the craft distilleries' websites to find retail locations where the products can be purchased, and be sure to visit the MA Craft Distillers Alliance website www.massdistill.com.
