Solveig GinMADE BY FAR NORTH SPIRITS IN HALLOCK, MINNESOTA
This soulful, bright, "field-to-glass" gin is inspired by the sun. Yes, the sun!
Made from non-GMO rye grown on a family farm in small-town Minnesota, Solvieg (SOUL-vai) is, unlike most gins, made of individually distilled botanicals that each get their solo time to...shine. Everything’s eventually blended together to create the final creamy, ethereally light spirit, but each citrus fruit, herb and spice maintains its own excellent depth of flavor.
Far North Spirits is actually the northernmost distillery in the contiguous US (far out!). Every step from milling to bottling is done by hand, on-site, by co-owner and head distiller Michael Swanson. Shine on.
