Who makes Culinary Solvent?
Meet Scott and Jessica, owners & founders.
It all began with a college business plan to turn Maine potatoes into super-premium vodka. We (Scott Galbiati and Jessica Jewell) met while pursuing degrees in engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in upstate NY. In 2006 we moved back to Maine and got married at the family camp on Grand Lake in Aroostook, County.
That original business plan, first draft completed December 2004 and revised through 2009, guided us in building the Northern Maine Distilling Company from the ground up. Our distillery's first location was an abandoned airport hanger in Houlton, Maine, then in 2013 we moved the operation to the current location in Brewer, Maine. While intently focused on creating pristine neutral food grade ethanol, we are still able to offer a diverse line up of beverage and non-beverage products.
