Vikre Distillery distillery sits before the Aerial Lift Bridge, the gateway to the vast waters of Lake Superior. On the cusp of such a port, perhaps it's not so curious that the distillery became the cultural crossroads that it is. Founded by Norwegian descendants and rooted in their traditions, Vikre specializes in the spirits of northern Europe fused with a bit of Americana.
The distiller makes its Boreal Gin, incorporating juniper, spruce, or cedar into an infusion of botanicals foraged from Minnesota's Northwoods. He also crafts aquavit, classically flavored with caraway and cardamom and enriched with a hint of sweet rye. And to celebrate its American environs, the business distills whiskeys from local grains, although those beverages are still some time from hitting shelves. They're busy aging in handcrafted Minnesotan oak barrels.
