Located just south of Belfast in the grounds of the beautiful Killaney Estate, the Hinch distillery takes its name from the nearby town of Ballynahinch, whose name in Irish translates as ‘town of the island’. Hinch uses only the finest malted barley, water from the Mourne Mountains, traditional Irish mashing processes and has a proud history of triple distillation for extreme mellowness. All of these whiskies are over-proofed at 43% and this is designed to give the consumer a long lingering finish without the “alcoholic burn” normally associated with drinking whisky straight. Try any one of the Hinch whiskies and you will find that they're all about flavor with the ABV way in the background (where it should be!). Available in four different bottlings: Small Batch Bourbon Cask, 5 Year Old Double Wood, 10 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish, and Peated Single Malt.

With the installation of a fabulous new, custom micro-still at its distillery, A. Smith Bowman Distillery has expanded its experimental spirits program. This allows for the creation of different flavor profiles of existing products and entirely new small batch spirits such as the Tinkerman's Gins.

But are they any good? You better believe it! Tinkerman's gins recently swept up Gold Medals at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition and the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition.

Tinkerman's Citrus Supreme uses a variety of citrus oriented botanicals, including lemon peel, Spanish orange, lime peel, lemongrass, vanilla bean, elderflower, Italian juniper, coriander and others. It's unashamedly floral on the nose with a complex and inviting citrus character. Expect a smooth mouthfeel and well-mannered juniper finish.

Tinkerman's Sweet Spice uses a combination of nutmeg, grains of paradise, coriander, American juniper, angelica, wormwood, lemon verbena, orris root and others. This gin is confidently aromatic. It's delightfully rich character draws you in with satisfying warm spice and finishes bold, yet balanced. Imagine holiday spices, warming for winter, and you get the idea of Sweet Spice.

Our Story

The Perfect Pour is Maryland’s ultimate retail liquor store located in Elkridge, just outside of Columbia (near Costco and Trader Joes). If you’re looking for a hard-to-find craft beer, vintage fine wines or just a new bottle of your favorite spirit, The Perfect Pour is the place to go. As soon as you enter our store you’ll understand why we’re different. Every area of the store – beer, wine, whiskey, scotch, vodka, gin, rum, tequila and liqueurs – has the best selection of products you need to keep your wine cellar or party well stocked. Our experienced and helpful staff is always ready to help you pick out the perfect bottle. Can’t find something? Let us know…if we don’t have it, we might be able to special order it for you at no extra charge. Since the beginning, we've strive to make your shopping experience unique by providing a knowledgeable staff and vast selection of products from the remarkable values to the one-of-a-kind collectibles. Our goal at The Perfect Pour is to make the world of craft beers, fine wines and exotic spirits accessible to everyone - no matter what your expertise level. One of the best ways to expand your drinking knowledge is to attend our weekly informal tasting events. Take your taste buds on a wonderful journey as you sample craft beers, hand-selected wines and exotic spirits from all over the world....for free! Our new 12 tap filling station pours the freshest craft beer in town, straight from an ice cold keg, into our reusable 32 or 64 ounce glass growler which can be taken home and enjoyed with friends or family. We're making Howard County a better place, one growler at a time! We were recognized by the Baltimore Sun’s Howard Magazine in 2012 as “The Best Place to Buy Spirits and Beer” as well as “The Best Place to Buy Wine” in Howard County. In 2013, we retained our “The Best Place to Buy Spirits and Beer” title and runner up for “The Best Place to Buy Wine”. And with 2014 and 2015 in the record books, so goes a set of back-to-back "The Best Place to Buy Wine, Beer & Liquor" medals in our trophy case.
