Far North Spirits is located on Swanson Farms, a working family farm set on 1,500 acres of Red River Valley jet-black soil in the northwest corner of Minnesota. Great Grandpa Gustav arrived in Minnesota back in 1917, and the land has been farmed by Swansons ever since — by his son Albert and Albert's son Charles. Now Michael, the fourth generation farmer in the family, plans to make Far North Spirits a large part of the farm's next 100 years. "Farming and distilling," Michael says, "are a marriage made in Minnesota. With its incredibly rich soil and farmer's pride in quality grains, Minnesota is certain to become a craft spirits destination."

Completed in 2013, the distillery's 8,850 square foot facility boasts two copper-pot stills, one 500-gallon and one 50-gallon, custom-made by Vendome Copper and Brass Works in Louisville, Kentucky. For Far North Spirits, crafting its spirits begins with hand-selecting seed varieties that will produce the finest spirits — from there, all of the farming, harvesting, milling, mashing, fermenting, distilling, and aging is done entirely on-site.

Far North Spirits Alander Spiced Rum, which takes its name from an idyllic chain of islands located in the northern Baltic, is made from a blend of Louisiana Turbinado and Florida Demerara sugar cane. All spices, including Madagascar and Tahitian vanilla beans, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and cloves, as well as espresso roasted by Peace Coffee in Minneapolis, are purchased whole before being infused into the rum. This natural process leads to a deliciously smooth rum with bold aromas of pumpkin pie and cinnamon on the nose, melting into vanilla on the palate. The finish is long and full, with a just a hint of espresso.

Fewer than 2,000 cases were produced in Far North Spirits' first production run, and the bottles themselves were made in France and decorated in Montreal.
