Tour of Flavors: Rockland/Camden
with Kelli Park
Let’s find out what Rockland and Camden have to offer in the off-season, just in time for the holidays! We’ll start the day off right with a tour of Rock City Coffee Roasters, where we’ll learn about the process from bean to mug. Let’s follow that up with a tour and tasting at Bixby & Co., Maine’s First Bean to Bar Chocolate Factory! Coffee and chocolate - it doesn’t get any better! Or does it. . .We’ll spend some time exploring Rockland and then make our way to Blue Barren Distillery in Camden! Blue Barren uses traditional European farm distilling methods with local Maine ingredients to create a variety of liquors, including their specialty (Maine!) blueberry brandy. After warming up with a tour and tasting at the distillery, we’ll check out downtown Camden and then start our return journey, with a surprise stop or two along the way! There’s plenty to do in the off-season in Maine, so mark your calendars for this flavorful adventure! Included in cost: tours and tastings at Rock City Coffee Roasters, Bixby & Co., and Blue Barren Distillery. Lunch not included in cost. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring extra layers, comfortable walking shoes, water and snacks, if you choose. We will be using a coach bus for transportation, equipped with a restroom. This trip is family-friendly (no tastings at the distillery for anyone under age 21, however!). Bring your sense of adventure!
