Star Tribune Names Solveig to 2014 “Best of Minnesota” List

May 15, 2014

Solveig Gin was named to the Star Tribune's 2014 Best of Minnesota list in the category "Best New Minnesota-Made Booze". With over 100 categories, from the best Minnesota getaways and fitness activities to the best food and drink, Star Tribune's Best of Minnesota awards highlight the best this state has to offer.

"Solveig is the work of our hearts," said Far North Spirits owner and distiller Michael Swanson. "I've been chasing this flavor profile for a while now, and it's gratifying to see it come to life. We're pretty thrilled to be considered 'best' in a state that is seeing a real boom in micro-spirits."

The Best of Minnesota listings were thoughtfully selected by the 265 Star Tribune journalists who comprise Minnesota’s largest and most-trusted newsroom.

“Our beat reporters, cultural critics and lifestyle experts are able to provide measured and thoughtful reasons for designating our Best of Minnesota winners, as they cover these topics day in and day out,” said Steve Yaeger, vice president of marketing and public relations for Star Tribune.

The complete Best of Minnesota listing was featured in the May 18 Star Tribune newspaper, which is distributed state-wide, and is also featured on, which is visited by more than two and a half million Minnesotans every month.
