"Silky mouthfeel with strong but not hot alcohol sensation. Bright fresh juniper bouquet, pungent and agrarian, mild piney flavor at taste, but with vanilla and sweeter candy tones. Middle note of spice and fresh grasses. Crisp, clean finish of anise and honey. A beautifully simple gin that will go well in cocktails or in sipping. A scenic gem off the tip of Wisconsins Door County peninsula, Washington Island is 30 square miles, home to a year-round population of 660, and steeped in the farming traditions of its 19th century Icelandic and Scandinavian settlers. Explorers and ship captains navigated between peninsula and island, from Green Bay to the open waters of the Great Lakes, through a treacherous passage named the Deaths Door by Native Americans. The changing currents and spirited waters of this legendary trade route inspired Deaths Door Spirits products and approach." ~ Distillery notes

A dream come true. What started as an experiment to see if agriculture could be restored, promoted and conserved on Washington Island, Wisconsin, has blossomed into a full-fledged business with the construction of the Company's new state-of-the art distillery in Middleton, Wisconsin. Completed on June 4th, 2012 grand opening, the facility is the largest craft distillery in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the region with an annual capacity in excess of 250,000 cases of finished product. Our intent is to produce enough product to meet our current and future demands while insuring that our products continue to have the same superior quality and consistency.
