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.
