A true craft farm-to-bottle Bourbon where the distiller also grows all the grain.

Far North Spirits was conceived by Michael Swanson and Cheri Reese upon returning home to pursue a simpler life. When "home" is the Red River Valley and a farm that is in its 4th generation of Swansons, producing quality rye and heirloom corn, "a simpler life" can only mean one thing ― distilling some proper Spirits. At the northernmost distillery in the US, we might add. Surrounded by super-fertile soil, nestled in a former wheat field just 25 miles from the Canadian border, they produce craft Gin, Rum, Vodka, and Whiskey ― all using grains they grow themselves.

Their focus is on using different grain varieties in order to produce unique and distinct Spirits. Beside the 4 Rye Whiskeys they released under the Roknar banner, there's the Bødalen Bourbon Whiskey as well. The single-estate Bourbon is crafted with grains grown by the distiller himself: It's 60% heirloom corn, 30% Hazlet winter rye, and 10% malted barley. The juice then spends 18 months in Minnesota-made oak barrels before being bottled at 90 proof and numbered by hand. Wondering about the name? It comes from a picturesque Norwegian valley with a beautiful glacier.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
