Cantilever Distillery & Chankaska Creek

Cantilever Distillery follows in the footsteps of the forefathers of the spirits movement of modern day America. Named for the bridge that helped smugglers keep the greater Midwest out of the tight grip of sobriety during the Prohibition era, Cantilever delivers on its promise of full bodied spirits. Cantilever Bourbon is distilled with a slightly higher than average wheat content, allowing for a sweet and smooth mouth feel and a rich and well spiced finish that does the Northwoods proud.

Cantilever distillery was built on the original location of a popular border guide: Woody’s Fairly Reliable Guide Service. In honor of their roots, Cantilever produces a line of spirits meant for those who wish to live in the spirit of the true north. Woody’s American-Canadian blended Rye, aptly blended for the man who built his empire on the border of two great nations, is perfect to brace yourself against the chilling winds of Northern Minnesota. Woody’s Gin and Vodka were expertly crafted to help ease you into that long weekend you’ve been drooling over Monday to Friday. Between the artful design of Cantilever and the consistently tasty Woody’s, Cantilever distillery has the perfect spirit for everyone who wants to get a feel for what living in the North is truly all about.

Dingle Distillery

The founders of Dingle Distillery, County Kerry, Ireland, have always chased perfection. Originally a craft beer creation, Dingle saw the Irish whiskey landscape and decided they could do better. Shortly after growing their small brewery into one of the first and finest artisanal distilleries in all of Ireland, Dingle Distiller’s tried their hand at gin.

What followed took the world by surprise. The award winning gin-namely the 2019 World Gin Award for World’s Best Gin-is the product of technique and loyalty. Technique driven in its macerated botanicals and distilling process, Dingle Original Gin is the work of those who truly respect the spirit. Loyal in its pursuit to honor its County Kerry roots, botanicals such as rowan berries and bog myrtle give Dingle Gin its distinct flavor profile. A London-Dry gin in name only, Dingle Gin is so unique it should be first tasted neat or on the rocks to be truly appreciated. While the founders of Dingle may keep pushing for perfection in whiskey, vodka, and beer, Dingle Gin may be their crowning glory. Click to Visit their Website

Bliss Vineyards

Bliss Family Vineyards, out of Northern California, have a storied history built on family and farming. The original picture-perfect land the vineyard was built upon was purchased by an awestruck Irv Bliss in the 1930s, to be developed as a family farm for three more generations. Only recently did the Bliss family decide the best way to honor their Grandfather and his beautiful ranch was to showcase the fruits of his labor.

Bliss has been working for nearly a century on developing the richest possible fruits for mouth-watering, versatile wines. Each wine has been crafted to pair with a range of meals: a Zinfandel for pork, their Blissful Red for pizza, a Chardonnay for an afternoon on the patio. Affordable and delicious, Bliss Family Vineyard strives to bring the beautiful rolling hills of Northern California to your home.
