Doire Distilling

Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.

– Mark Twain

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. We figured if we were going to make whiskey, we may as well do it in a town settled by the Irish.

Our Story

Andy Day & Alana Wentworth, owners of Cask & Vine, founded and opened Doire in August of 2018, becoming Derry’s first craft distillery. Having been involved in the craft beer and small winery scene through The Drinkery, a bottle shop located under the old Tupelo Music Hall and experiencing the budding beer scene all around them, they opted to add a new reason to visit the historic downtown: Craft Spirits.

Like most distilleries, Doire opened up offering clear and lightly-aged spirits including their first product, a high-test rum aptly named “01” – simultaneously paying homage to the “Duke Boys” who ran illegal ‘shine in Hazzard county – and a staple of any kid who grew up in the 1980s.

Doire quickly began to expand it’s offerings to include a collection of botanical gins, rum and vodka. “Tapping” into their local relationships, a series dubbed “Single Cut” was a white-whiskey collaborative effort with well-established breweries including Kelsen Brewing Company and Martha’s Exchange. As these whiskeys were released, Doire had the opportunity to begin laying down barrel-aging projects which included a peated whiskey, Irish single malt, bourbon and most recently a 100% Malt Rye whiskey.

Our Spirits
