Great Lakes Distillery

Guy Rehorst founded Great Lakes, Wisconsin's first legal distillery since Prohibition, in 2004. His goal was to make small batch spirits with old-world craft methods using Wisconsin-grown ingredients.

Guy’s innovation in distilling combined with his advocacy for the indie spirits movement has lead him to win a spot on the Craft Distillers Advisory Council of the Washington DC based Distilled Spirits Council of the United States.
