Round Turn Distilling

Round Turn is a small distillery located in a 150 year-old textile mill on the coast of Maine. Darren Case, Owner/Distiller, Kristina Hansen, Owner/GM. Maker of Bimini Gin.

A Round Turn is the most simple knot, one complete turn of a rope around an object. Despite its simplicity, it is immensely strong and effective, used to hold even great ships against a dock. But its strength relies on a person holding one end of the rope and applying tension, allowing the forces of friction and torque to work. Distilling is simple, just condensing vapor back to liquid. But with a person applying their senses of smell and taste, this simple process can be harnessed to produce something complex and sublime. Located in a 150 year-old textile mill on the Saco River 5 miles from the Maine coast, Round Turn Distilling embodies the pragmatism and industriousness of its New England forebears. While the mill once used the waters of the river to power its massive looms, Round Turn uses steam to power its modern, steel and copper still. The still is itself an embodiment of tradition informed by innovation. Built in Etna, Maine, by Trident Stills, it blends the basic principles of the centuries-old pot-still with modern innovations and efficiencies. After all, tradition was once innovation in its time.

Our special drink kits this week! ☕️Up & Down Hands: a coffee-lime G&T
🌲Italian Greyhound: grapefruit, bitter orange, and rosemary
🚙Open 2-7 for curbside pickup!

Hi friends! 👋
Today marks 5 years since we opened our doors and launched Bimini Gin. This certainly isn’t the big anniversary bash we had been planning for, but we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. It’s been an honor to get to know so many of you and become part of your lives, and we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you all. If you’ve been a regular at the tasting room or bought a bottle to enjoy at home, ordered Bimini at your favorite restaurant or featured it in your cocktail program, you have made all the difference to our Round Turn family.
Since we can’t celebrate together right now, to mark the occasion we’ll be posting special drink kits all month long, inspired by the last 5 years of menus. This week we’re offering the Italian Greyhound, made with grapefruit, bitter orange, and rosemary, and the Up & Down Hands, a coffee-lime G&T featuring @elementscoffeeroasters Cold Brew Concentrate!
Please enjoy these not-at-all chronological photos of our past 5 years. We hope to see you soon!

Our Bimini BR1 is aged in three different types of used barrels to create a unique layering of flavors. 🥃 We originally thought it was perfect for cooler weather, but as the temperature creeps up in its slow Maine-summer way, BR1 is reminding us just how bright and versatile it can be. ☀️ Try it in a G&T or swap it in place of light rum for a refreshingly different flavor 🍹
