A Northwoods taks on a Nordic tradition. Voyageur Aquavit is delicately spiced with caraway, cardamom, and orange peel, and cognac cask finished.
Generations ago, our Norwegian ancestors discovered a familiar beauty in the Northwoods of Minnesota. In its wildness and purity 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. Vikre Distillery is located in Duluth, Minnesota, adjacent to the aerial lift bridge that raises to allow ships in and out of the world’s farthest-inland seaport. No other lake feels this much like the sea. Indeed, Lake Superior is the world’s largest freshwater lake.
