Distillery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Hoarfrost Distilling is a small, family owned craft distillery that specializes in making world class vodka from Alaskan barley and water. All our equipment was designed for this sole purpose, and with it we make a smooth vodka ideal for sipping.

We opened our doors in January of 2017 and have been growing our brand reputation ever since. In fall of 2017 we penned our first agreement to start distributing our vodka statewide, and hopefully beyond.

Our tasting room is the ideal place to come and enjoy our vodka in comfort. We make many signature cocktails, and we freely share our recipes. You can also catch one of our tasting tours where you get to see and learn about our production process as well as try our vodka and several infusions and liqueurs.

The owner, Toivo Luick, is a lifelong Alaskan. He has traveled all over the state on numerous adventures before settling down, getting married and pursuing the art of distilling. His adorable wife Natalya is from Russia, the homeland of vodka.

  • We had such a wonderful time at this family owned distillery and tasting room. The owners and staff were so welcoming and attentive to make our experience the best that it could be. They went out of their way to offer multiple tasters of their product and infusions. The description of their unique specialty drinks will make your mouth water they sounds so good. Everything was delicious and unique! And of course it would be - fresh and organic local ingredients are used like the black or red currants in season right now. It was such a neat experience to take the tour of the facilities as well to get a further in depth understanding and a visual of the vodka making process. I personally learned a lot and had a fantastic time socializing!
  • Nice small place with great vodka but 2 Drink Limit. They also close at 9 and its cutthroat for the few seats. Not a place to go have a good time. It's just for tasting. Definitely a select clientele. Nice service but I wont be back.
