Founded by Dean and Melissa Long in 1997
and located on Nantucket Island, Triple Eight Distillery is the
region’s first micro-distillery. Named after its ultra pure
water source, well #888, Triple Eight Distillery makes a variety
of premium spirits, all of which are hand crafted in small batches
using only natural ingredients.
In addition to our flagship product, Triple Eight Vodka, we make Triple Eight Orange Vodka, Hurricane Rum, Gale Force Gin and Notch (“not scotch” single malt whiskey), the first release of which is due in the spring of 2005.
Our “hard stuff that’s hard to get” motto is noticeably changing. Currently distributed in 12 states and growing quickly, we have been the beneficiary of much national media exposure (The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Associated Press, Boston Magazine, Agenda Magazine, Elle Magazine and much more).
Yet perhaps our strongest marketing force is the island of Nantucket itself and its 200,000 visitors each year. We are grateful for your continued support and look forward to your next visit to 5 and 7 Bartlett Farm Road – home of Triple Eight Distillery.
Gale Force Gin
Triple 8 Vodka
is an ultra premium vodka produced on Nantucket Island. The vodka is triple distilled from the highest quality organically grown grain. It is then blended with our exceptionally clean and soft water drawn from well #888. Triple Eight outscored Ketel One in the World Spirit Championships, conducted by the Beverage Testing Institute. 80 proof, 750ml, 6/case
Triple 8 Blueberry Vodka
is made with wild low-bush blueberries from Maine, infused into our organic spirit. No other blueberry vodka in the world can match the true flavor, color and aroma that comes through in Triple Eight Blueberry vodka. Plain and simple, "real fruit, real people, really good!" 68 proof, 750ml, 6/case
is a classic gin wonderfully balanced with juniper and citrus notes. Blended to 88.8 proof with exceptionally pure water from well #888. Refreshingly clean and smooth, Gale Force Gin is something special. Have a sip and brace yourself to be impressed!

Triple 8 Cranberry Vodka
is created with organically grown cranberries from Nantucket's own Windswept Organic Farm. Cranberry was a natural choice for this island distillery, as it has been cultivated on Nantucket since the mid 1800's. Master distiller Dean Long hand-selects the best fruit the island has to offer and crafts an amazing cranberry vodka. Triple Eight Cranberry was the highest ranked cranberry vodka in the World Spirit Championship. 68 proof, 750ml, 6/case
Triple 8 Vanilla Vodka
is far and away the best vanilla vodka on the market. Actual vanilla beans from Madagascar and New Guinea are put directly into the bottle. The beans impart an amazing amount of natural flavor, color and aroma as well as small specks of pure vanilla flavor; simply delicious. 76 proof, 750ml, 6/case
is named for the legendary storms that have battered New England for centuries. Born of corn mash, blended to perfection and bottled in small batches; Nor'Easter mixes rich, sweet flavors with warm, full bodied aromas of the hearth.
88.8 proof, 750ml, 6/case
Triple 8 Orange Vodka
is unlike most other flavored vodkas on the market today. There are no artificial flavors or extracts. To get that true orange flavor and aroma, each spring we hand-peel honey bell oranges from Florida. This world class fruit is the secret to this great vodka. Triple Eight Orange was the highest ranked orange vodka in the World Spirit Championships. 80 proof, 750ml, 6/case
is released each year during Hurricane season. The rum is over proofed at 88.8 proof to reflect the strength of the hurricane's amazing natural power. It is aged in bourbon casks imparting a wonderful golden color and distinctive whiskey flavor. Hints of caramel and vanilla along with a smoky tobacco flavor make this rum very well balanced. 88.8 proof, 750 ml, 6/case
