OUR CRAFT

We never planned to become distillers.  But one frigid January night, Lake Superior, vast, majestic, mysterious, called us with a bidding we could not refuse.  "Come," she whispered to us.  And we knew we would. 

The nature and culture of Northern Minnesota are our inspiration and terroir. The pristine beauty of Lake Superior, the North Woods and the Boundary Waters are distilled in the flavor of everything we make. It's difficult to imagine a more perfect place for making distilled spirits. We craft spirits that thoughtfully blend tradition and innovation.  We forage the Northwoods for wild botanicals; whenever possible we use local grains, handcrafted Minnesota oak barrels, and the clean, cold water of Lake Superior. Distilling the essence of this great watershed into the finest spirits possible is our passion. Doing so purely and creatively, using traditional methods, is our vocation.
