Far North Spirits

From the Distillery- "In 1917, Great Grandpa Gustav arrived in Skane Township to begin farming some of the richest land on earth. Almost 100 years later, we built Far North Spirits, the northernmost distillery in the contiguous United States, here on the Swanson family farm just 25 miles from Canada in the northwest corner of Minnesota. After 20+ years away, we've returned to live a life that takes its cues from nature. Plant in spring, revel in summer, harvest in fall, reflect in winter. You know, farming.

Our spirits embody the best of every skill and bit of knowledge we've acquired over the years. Not only do we distill from start to finish, we hand select the seed varieties, plant and harvest all non-GMO grains, and carefully source the botanicals and spices. The field-to-glass farming model we're using is even older than Great Grandpa Gustav, dating back to before the country's founding. Farmers found that turning crops into whiskey was an efficient way of bringing them to market. They didn't spoil and were easier to transport. Not to mention, making whiskey was a helluva lot more fun."

    A bold, juniper backbone is balanced by bright citrus, clean herbal and vegetal notes, with a lingering, peppery expression of earth and sea. This premium, artisanal spirit is born of AC Hazlet Winter Rye (non-GMO) planted and harvested by the distiller on the family farm. Every step of production - milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling and bottling - is done by hand at Far North Spirits.

    Gustaf's 11 botanicals are individually distilled to capture each one's best attributes. Botanicals include juniper, Meyer lemon, grains of paradise, fennel, coriander, meadowsweet and others. Individual distillations are blended together to create the final spirit. Although most gin is produced by distilling all botanicals at once in a single run, Far North is committed to this more labor intensive process as it results in a truly superior gin with greater depth and character.

    Our navy strength gin is named for the distiller's Great Grandpa Gustaf, a steely-eyed Swede who, with his wife Anna Christine, started the family farm in 1917. At 114 proof, navy strength gin occupies a storied place in the annals of British Naval history. The daily ration of gin or rum was only allowed on board if the proof was high enough to ensure that if the liquor drenched the gun powder at sea it would still ignite.">
