Twin Valley Distillers

The Spirits are Rising in Maryland

Twin Valley Distillers is Montgomery County’s first operating distillery using local grains and products in an attempt to revive the fine art of handcrafted spirit-making in Maryland. ‘Maryland authentic’ is a term Twin Valley uses to highlight their commitment to the burgeoning 'farm-to-table' concept so popular in restaurants today. The company sources all grain and raw products exclusively within a 50-mile radius of their location in Rockville, Maryland. Grains are also recycled back to local farms for animal feed. They are now proud to introduce this November, the first straight bourbon in Maryland, through their Maryland Whiskey Company division.
The quality of Twin Valley’s pristine premium liquors is ensured by their master distiller, Edgardo Zuniga, whose unerring chef’s palate determines whether a new batch is ready for bottling or not. Hand-crafted, small-batch bourbons, whiskeys and other fine spirits is what defines Twin Valley Distillers.
