About Us

Martha’s Vineyard Distilling Company was born out the idea and dream of two islanders. Nick and Ryan were both born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard. Classmates at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School, after high school, Nick and Ryan went on very different paths. Nick developed a successful construction company and Ryan developed a successful optometric practice, both on Martha’s Vineyard.

Despite their very different paths, Nick and Ryan have joined together in a common goal and passion: To create the very best and first spirits that the island of Martha’s Vineyard has to offer. 

All of the spirits created by the Martha’s Vineyard Distilling Company are both inspired by and developed on a farm deep in the woods of Tisbury. Handcrafted in small batches, quality is of the utmost importance. Ingredients are key to producing a quality spirit.  All grains are either organically grown or from farms committed organic farming techniques.  The herbs used in some of the recipes are produced naturally right on the farm on which the distillery stands.  The water comes directly from the Vineyard which gives it a unique and smooth flavor.

The Martha’s Vineyard Distilling Company is committed to supporting the island economy so for now the spirits can only be found in select restaurants along with all of the liquor stores on Martha’s Vineyard. We can be found at: Al’s Package Store, Jim’s Package Store, MV Wine and Spirits, Our Market, The Port Supply, Vineyard Wine and Cheese Shop, Vintage MV Wine and Spirits, and the Wharf Liquor Store. Merchandise and accessories can be found right here. Look for it, ask for it, and enjoy the first and finest spirits produced on Martha’s Vineyard.  Thank you!
