Twin Spirits Distillery embodies old Minneapolis, right down to its historical barn-like building from the 1920s. But nowhere is this old-fashioned charm more evident than in its selection of hand-crafted spirits, which include a gin made with a custom blend of botanicals and a vodka that plays heavily on the tongue's sweetness receptors.
But the distillery isn’t solely a nod to the past. It happily bucks patriarchal tradition by standing as the first one-woman distillery in the state, overseen by Michelle Winchester. But Michelle isn’t just content to rest on her already impressive laurels as a pioneering female distiller. She has plans to bring Twin Spirits even further into the 21st century by expanding the green spaces around the building, overseeing an interactive cocktail room, and eventually opening an additional building that could serve as an events space for the community.
