Vikre Distillery is a craft distillery located in Duluth, Minnesota adjacent to the aerial lift bridge that raises to allow ships in
and out of the worlds farthest-inland seaport.
Generations ago (well, technically a generation ago!) our Norwegian ancestors (hi mom!) discovered a familiar beauty in the Northwoods of Minnesota. In its pristine wildness 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.
We forage the Northwoods of Minnesota for wild botanicals, we use local grains, handcrafted oak barrels, and the clean, cold water of Lake Superior. Distilling the essence of this great
watershed into the finest spirits possible is our passion. Doing so authentically and creatively, from scratch, is our vocation.

Very cool place with some fun cocktails. I definitely enjoyed they had some board games to play while enjoying our drinks! Last time I visited I didn't see any food options within the distillery which would have been nice to keep us there longer.
Place was cool, but the line was 15 people deep and at least 40 minutes to get a drink. They didn't seem equipped to handle the few people that wanted a cocktail. Will stick to the several breweries within walking distance.
Very unique mixed drinks made from their own distilled Gin, Vodka and Whiskey. It's a bit loud for a lot of conversation but great for trying new things. Note they can't sell bottles after 10pm (that's caught me a few times) but they'll still make drinks to enjoy on site until close.
We travel all over the country visiting breweries and distilleries and this was probably my least favorite. I’ll say that the place is beautiful and the staff is so kind and helpful, but the whiskey was BAD. We had trouble even drinking it when we ordered a flight. I hope they can continue to perfect their craft!
The service here was incredible. We took home some insane whiskey and gin, vodka and cognac. Highly recommend! Also, 8 bucks gets you 4 tastes, definitely worth it.
