We love it here. From grain to glass, everything at Northland Spirits is homegrown in our home state of Minnesota. Our grains are grown by organic Minnesota farmers from the prairies of western Minnesota. Our vodka is distilled in Benson, Minnesota, within 30 miles of the organic farms on which our corn is grown. It’s bottled right here in the Twin Cities. And, Northland is locally owned, which means everything stays in our community because our founders are all born, raised and reside in Minnesota. And more importantly, because 5% of our profits support local Minnesota community hockey programs, Northland Vodka helps to enrich one of Minnesota’s cherished traditions.
“I’m a Minnesotan, born and raised. And, I co-founded Northland Spirits along with a few old friends to create a purpose-driven company that gives back to my home State through supporting local hockey programs and charities. I wanted a clean, gluten-free vodka made from premium ingredients – an uncompromising product at a fair price. I’m proud of our product, our purpose, and I hope you enjoy our vodka (in moderation!) as much as I do.”
