Staff Appreciation.

Like the spirit that drove Minnesota explorer Jonathon Carver, the passion to discover things new, unexpected, and delightful exists in us all.

At J. Carver Distillery, passion fuels our relentless search for the highest quality local ingredients, the best of artisanal techniques, and liberal experimentation with methods to invent things new and better. We bring that same passion to every tour, every presentation, every special event.


J. Carver craftsmanship is based on a deep desire to provide top-shelf hospitality through quality, attention to detail, and eyes locked on the long view. This craftsmanship is a promise we make to you in partnering your private event.


We’ve gained the trust of many happy customers as a top-shelf event destination, and we’re proud of our rave reviews. No cookie cutters here—we work with you to customize your event so it meets every need and provides your guests a fun and unique event they’ll be talking about long after.  Events become unforgettable when you include a private tour & barrel room demonstration, a Q&A with the distillers, a cocktail class, a hands-on “distiller-for-a-day” experience, or one of our other unique spins on private parties.


Our beautiful public spaces can serve up to 80 guests, and our well-equipped board room seats up to 14 comfortably. When it comes to choosing food for your event you’ll have many options. Our spacious parking lot has plenty of room for cars, limos, and buses.
