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. 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.

It’s a lovely afternoon in Biddeford ☀️☀️☀️ Toast this sunny spring weather with a cocktail or two, then head next door to Banded Brewing Co. for tacos on the deck! 🍹🌮😎👌🏼

Celebrate Mom by giving her the flowers she really wants! 😉 Chamomile & hops, two of the unique botanicals in #biminigin. Chamomile adds a light floral note with a hint of honey, while the hops create a perfect balance of bitterness and aroma. Pick up a bottle today, or treat Mom to a spring cocktail or two - open until 8pm Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day! 🥂🌼🍃

Yesterday, Bill Bassett (@bluesinglespeed), our neighbor over at @thinktankbiddeford and one of our dear regulars from the very beginning, presented us with this treasured family heirloom, a D. H. Borwick cocktail shaker from the 1930’s, complete with a set of gorgeous recipe cards. We are truly touched by his generosity, and will display it proudly on our backbar shelves. Thank you so much, Bill, and we wish you all the best on your new adventures! Cheers!
