Vikre Distillery

525 S Lake Ave, Ste 102, Duluth, United States



Why shouldn't the best spirits in the world come from a tiny frozen town on the edge of the world's largest lake? Craft spirits, Duluth, MN Please drink responsibly.  

Vikre Distillery is a craft distillery located in Duluth, Minnesota adjacent to the aerial lift bridge that raises to allow ships in
and out of the worlds farthest-inland seaport.

Generations ago (well, technically a generation ago!) our Norwegian ancestors (hi mom!) discovered a familiar beauty in the Northwoods of Minnesota. In its pristine wildness they felt at home. Vikre (veek-ruh), our family name,
means "the people of the bay" once in Norway, now on the narrow Western tip of Lake Superior.

We forage the Northwoods of Minnesota for wild botanicals, we use local grains, handcrafted oak barrels, and the clean, cold water of Lake Superior. Distilling the essence of this great
watershed into the finest spirits possible is our passion. Doing so authentically and creatively, from scratch, is our vocation.
