Collection: Wiggly Bridge Distillery
Small Batch Spirits Handcrafted in York Beach Maine
From hobby, to obsession to profession.
It all started during a family dinner with a joking statement, between Father David Woods and son David II, of “lets make our own whiskey.” With their love for good whisky and fascination to see how things are made a half-hearted joke turned a bit serious and they decided to explore the idea. They researched and studied and some say obsessed over how to build a still and process alcohol.
Being fortunate enough to travel to the Caribbean they decided to build and operate a small hand made copper still on the island of Montserrat to put their research to the test. Turns out they were quite good at it and grew even more intrigued by the craft of small batch distilling. What they made rivaled some of their favorite brands with a bit of a twist.
Soon enough they decided to take on the daunting task of researching and securing all necessary permits to open up a craft distillery in the U.S. It has been far from an easy task, but they are not the type to shy away from a challenge. At the end of the day quality is their priority and what they do best. They will not stop until our products reach their high standards while providing ultimate enjoyment for anyone who has a taste of what they create.
Today the Woods Family can be found working with the rest of the family at their other family businesses. Their passion for hard work is unprecedented. The Woods family is an old fashioned hard working, modest bunch who are not afraid to put in a good day's work.
Wiggly Bridge Distillery, like the other businesses, is family owned and operated and committed to providing quality products to their customers..
THE WIGGLEY BRIDGE
The Wiggley Bridge really is a one of a kind structure that is simple yet intriguing. The original Wiggley Bridge was built in the 1930’s by a north Berwick company that now makes seats for giant stadiums. Legend has it that in the 1940s the bridge got it’s name from a girl scout troop who said it “wiggles” as they walk over it. Simple enough.
At first glance, the Wiggley Bridge may seem insignificant due to its size and because it blends naturally in with the surrounding landscape. A closer look will reveal a beautifully built unique structure right in the middle of scenery that is to die for.
The Wiggley Bridge is the world’s smallest pedestrian suspension bridge.
