It’s a story of two people – Michael Swanson and Cheri Reese – who returned home to find the authenticity of a simple life and fulfill a deep desire to make tangible, artisanal products of unquestionable quality and value. The northernmost distillery in the contiguous United States, Far North Spirits makes premium, heritage spirits inspired by Minnesota’s character and agricultural abundance. Located just 25 miles from the Canadian border, we are one of only a handful of estate distilleries nation-wide to also grow our own grains.

The winery’s name comes from its founders: Blair Trathen and Arabella Hall, who met in Martha’s Vineyard (Arabella’s home) and decided to pursue a life in wine together. Blair comes from New Zealand and that’s where they headed, completing their post-graduate studies in Viticulture and Enology at Lincoln University in Canterbury in 1999.
