Character Goatson
A crisp and lightly sweet Vodka from Minnesota double-distilled to allow the character to shine through.

Just off Route 55 on the south side of Minneapolis, east of the Mississippi River site Du Nord Craft SpiritsChris Montana and his wife Shanelle had careers in law and politics when they wisely decided to put all that behind them and distill Spirits. This epiphany took root in 2013 and since then this happy family has grown their local business into a thriving micro-enterprise with deep community roots and charitable leanings. They have a tidy range of five Whiskeys and Liqueurs steeped in local flare.

L’Etoile means "the star" in French. As with many small distilleries, Vodka was the first Spirit to come off the stills at Du Nord. So it makes a lot of sense that they named it in a way filled with meaning — completing not only the state motto, but providing a sense of purposeful direction in the pursuit of their goals… their own personal North Star. Du Nord L'Etoile Vodka is a multi-award-winner made from a double bass of corn and sugar beets. The Spirit is double-distilled and charcoal filtered, allowing the subtle characteristics of the base to influence the aromatics and textures.

Smartass Corner:
The name "Du Norde" is a reference to the state motto of Minnesota — L'étoile du Nord, which translates from French as "The North Star." The land where Minneapolis is today was a part of the Louisiana Purchase from France in 1803.

Character Dogson
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
Du Nord Craft Spirits was the first-ever Black-owned microdistillery, paving the path for other like-minded entrepreneurs of color in the industry.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
Chris Montana is the former president of the American Craft Spirits Association, serving two consecutive terms.
The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
