What you'll do

Guests are welcomed to cozy up to the bar where they will find their work stations, a set of mixing tins, mixing glass, bar spoon, and jigger. They will be instructed on the correct techniques of handling the bar tools and spirit bottles to create the perfect measurements of our drink. They will shake one drink, and stir the other and learn when and why to employ these different cooling methods. The guests will be given a brief history of spirits, cocktails, and the saloon culture. After the second drink is complete, guests will be taken on a tour of Maine Craft Distilling. They will experience first hand where we malt the grain and distill our award winning craft spirits.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 21 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

During the hour and half class you will be consuming two full cocktails. I would plan for a designated driver or alternative means of transportation.
