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.

  • They know what they are doing. I only had the whiskey. All 4 of them neat on a float. The black malt and the single malt are good ( being in Duluth Minnesota). Vikre really need to get over their love of all things caramel, hazelnut or vanilla and make a serious single malt that puts hair on your chest. The fruitiness only goes so far, unless you are making whiskies meant for making cocktails only. The staff is amazing and very nice. The place looks fantastic and worthy a date night. The old fashion I ordered was excellent . This place is worth checking out.
  • It's the best place in Canal Park by far. Drinks are amazingly tasty. The atmosphere is cozy and sophisticated at the same time. Went back two nights because it was so good. Great old fashion. Wife as for an extra dirty martini and they delivered. On our must stop when in town list.
