By Betty Jespersen – New Sharon: Dairy farmer John Donald has a few common sense words of advice that he's followed over the years: Keep your milk cold, your water hot and stay out of debt.

The characteristics of the potatoes remain key as they are cooked into a soup that is fermented into wine and triple-distilled. Even after the alcohol is mixed with water, Dowe can trace the vodka's origins back to the potatoes. "Ours comes out very smooth," said Dowe, managing partner and head distiller at Maine Distilleries. "The flavor is very distinctive. This is more a traditional vodka."
