Why ME - Cold River Vodka from Alexander Bertoni on Vimeo.

Up next in Alex Bertoni's "Why ME" series is a tour of Maine's first craft distillery - Cold River Vodka!

Cold River uses only Maine potatoes to make their vodka, and it's pretty darn good. Erin from Cold River's tasting room walks us through a bit of history in this video.

As Maine's first craft distillery, Cold River Vodka set the standard by which a cadre of new businesses are now judged. Using only locally-sourced Maine potatoes from a farm in Fryeburg, Cold River is dedicated to supporting their community and producing world class spirits, including a fantastic gin and a smoky barrel-aged vodka that is on par with even the best whiskeys.

Meet Erin, Cold River's social media guru and tasting room guide, as she walks you through an amazing apple cider cocktail that is perfect for leaf-peeping season!"
