A late, wet spring made for a muddy start to the site prep. There's a driveway in there somewhere...
There's the driveway
Millie and Weston working it.
A building arrives
In pieces, but still. As our name implies, Far North Spirits IS almost at the end of the world. The truck driver from Texas couldn't locate us with her GPS, so we met her in Hallock and she followed us out.
A building begins
The foundation is staked out, and floor heat is laid. The finished distillery building will be 8,850 square feet, including an aging room for the whiskey barrels and a tasting room.
Could be a hot wheels car racetrack
Right? Remember those? But it's floor heat.
Where we put the cheeseburgers. No, wait. That's the cat. Which we don't have.
Chartreuse canola fields stretch toward the south and you can see for miles.
Almost hated to cover up those graceful beams.
Doors are good
Especially when the temperature dips below -30 F.
Go north until you see Canada, turn left at the mailboxes
Unless of course you're coming from Hallock, then it's a right.
You're in the right place
And it's worth the drive.
So much is happening as of July 25, 2013. Thanks to a GREAT construction crew, we are on track even after getting a late start with the wet spring.
