About Far North Spirits Roknar Minnesota Rye Whiskey

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.

Roknar is a rye whiskey that is crafted with a mash bill of 80% AC Hazlet rye, 10% non-GMO Minnesota corn, and 10% malt barley. Both the rye and corn were planted as well as harvested by Michael Swanson. The very-small-batch expression spends nearly 2 years in charred oak barrels before being finished in cognac casks for up to 1 month and bottled at 94 proof. It's Far North's effort in establishing the "Minnesota Rye" as a regional style with unique characteristics — a terroir whiskey.

About Far North Spirits

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."

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.

By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
