Why did you choose the name Tenth Ward Distilling Company?
During the pre-prohibition and prohibition eras, Frederick was districted into wards. Our location is in what used to be considered the “Tenth Ward.” The Tenth Ward was made up mostly of industry and manufacturing. We wanted to revitalize some of that history with our name.

Can I take a tour?
Yes, please! Tenth Ward offers tastings and tours regularly during our opening hours. No ticket required.


Where do your ingredients come from?
We source as locally as possible and are conscious of the impact we have on the environment. We’ve put together a chart that includes a full rundown of everything Tenth Ward uses.


Where can I buy your booze?
Tenth Ward products can be purchased at the distillery during open hours. We are located at 508 East Church Street in Frederick, MD.

Do you ship booze or Tenth Ward merch?
We do not currently ship our spirits or merchandise.
