Hand-Crafted Minnesota Made Gin
Minnesota’s Far North Spirits is known as the northernmost distillery in
the contiguous United States. They are one of just a handful of authentic
field-to-glass estate producers of small-batch, craft-distilled spirits that
we’re lucky enough to have right here in Minnesota.
Inspired by a heritage of independence and agricultural substance, founding
partners Michael Swanson and Cheri Reese fled the corporate world to Michael’s
fourth-generation family farm in Hallock, Minnesota. Here, they hand select, plant
and harvest non-GMO grains that they mill, mash, ferment, distill and bottle
entirely on premise, from start to finish.
Solveig Gin offers scents of citrus, pine cones and a hint of lavender. The
creamy, light gin is exceptionally balanced with flavors of thyme and
coriander, making it both complex and bright.
