2011 Cold River Bartenders Bash
Ready for the party of the season?  Then mark those calendars for the 2nd Annual Cold River Bartenders Bash!  Sponsored by Maine Magazine, the Maine Restaurant Association, Maine Beverage Company, and Maine Home + Design, the Bash will feature 15 of Maine's top mixologists competing for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place cash prizes, to be decided by "People's Choice" votes.  Guests will enjoy an impressive variety of cocktail creations made with Cold River Vodkas and Cold River Gin, heavy hors d'oeuvres from area culinary talent, and live classic blues and rock tunes by the Ken Grimsley Band throughout the evening.

About Maine Distilleries, LLC (www.mainedistilleries.com)
Founded in 2005, Maine Distilleries, located in Freeport, Maine, is the brainchild of four talented Maine entrepreneurs:  Donnie Thibodeau, owner of Green Thumb Farms in Fryeburg, ME; his brother, Lee Thibodeau, a neurosurgeon in Portland, ME; Bob Harkins, a former Sunday River ski executive from Paris, ME; and Chris Dowe, Head Distiller, from New Gloucester, ME.

Known for their distinct nose and satin-smooth finish, the company's gluten-free vodkas and gin are hand-crafted and batch-distilled in a copper pot still, using water from Maine's Cold River Aquifer and farm-fresh Maine potatoes.  Maine Distilleries, which solely produces Cold River Vodka, Cold River Blueberry Vodka, and Cold River Gin, is the only "ground-to-glass" distillery in the nation, where the company controls every aspect of production from the planting of the potatoes to final bottling.  The company's award-winning Classic and Blueberry Vodkas currently are available at major markets, restaurants, and fine spirits retailers in 26 states, the District of Columbia, western Canada and London.  Cold River Gin begins its 2010 launch with a presence in seven northeast and southeast states and the District of Columbia.For more information, visit www.mainedistilleries.com or call (207) 865-4828.
