About Doire Distilling

Doire, pronounced "dwar-ay", comes from a 6th century old Irish word meaning "oak grove" or "oak wood". We are a family-owned 125 gallon pot still craft distillery, creating unique offerings from scratch in downtown Derry, New Hampshire. Our offerings will consist of white whiskey (moonshine), vodka, flavored vodkas, gin, whiskey and bourbon, along with special limited small-batch projects.

Crowd Funding

We have already purchased our 125 gallon still, fermentation vessels and mash tun - however we're looking to come out swinging, and to do so, we're looking for oak - both new and used, to place our hand-crafted spirits inside of. We're looking to include YOU in our adventure, and have put together some fun rewards for contributions. We are accepting them via Paypal online, or as cash/check at our craft beer bar, Cask & Vine, located directly beside our distillery. You can learn more about our team here.

Update:  4-9-2018  Thank you to our incredible crowd funding supporters!  We will be ordering shirts shortly, and cannot wait to share our spirits with you!
