Jonathan Carver is the namesake for our distillery's home county.
Jonathan Carver was a pioneer and frontiersman, an explorer and a risk taker. His search for a northwest passage led him across unmapped lands and territories to the Minnesota River Valley. A wild and untamed wilderness, it developed into a critical hub of Minnesota's agriculture industry.
The same spirit that led pioneers like Jonathan Carver is found at the heart of our distillery. We are driven to explore the local spirit-producing bounty of the cold climate fruits and grains of the Minnesota River Valley. Not interested in the production of me-too product, we are committed to collaboration with local farmers and barrel coopers to develop unique spirits of superior quality by coaxing forth magic from the fruits and grains grown nearby.
