Far North Spirits, near Hallock, Minn., is the northernmost craft distillery in contiguous U.S.
Great Grandpa Gustaf and his wife Anna Christine arrived in Minnesota from Sweden 100 years ago. They built the farm in the harshest of climates because the soil is among the most fertile on earth and the prairie reminded them of home.
Our job is to craft spirits that live up to their legacy.
The northernmost distillery in the contiguous United States, Minnesota's Far North Spirits is one of a handful of authentic field-to-glass estate producers of small-batch, craft-distilled spirits.
Inspired by a heritage of independence, hardihood and agricultural abundance, founding partners Michael Swanson and Cheri Reese fled the corporate world to Michael's fourth-generation family farm. Here, they hand select, plant and harvest all non-GMO grains. They also mill, mash, ferment, distill and bottle all spirits entirely from start to finish.
