Drinking the Maine Potato

Two brothers from Presque Isle will soon be turning Maine potatoes into vodka.

Lee and Donnie Thibodeau have founded Maine Distilleries LLC—"the United States’ only ground to glass potato vodka distillery"—and will produce Cold River Vodka at their plant in Freeport. The ingredients for the vodka are water drawn from the Saco River Valley Aquifer, and potatoes grown at Green Thumb Farms in Fryeburg, owned by Donnie Thibodeau and his wife Brenda. Said Donnie, "I figured, if we’re not going to eat them, let’s drink them."
