OUR STORY

Emily Gude Photography

We are Tenth Ward Distilling Company. We are proud to be woman-owned. We are located in what used to be the Tenth Ward of Frederick City. Specializing in a variety of year-round spirits, we take claim to producing Maryland’s first absinthe (heck yes, it’s real absinthe), and have a passion for developing small batch, one-time-only limited releases. Everything we make is non-traditional and unconventional, which is why we live fearlessly by our slogan – #wardoffordinary.
