"Pistachio nougat, sweet cream, and cream of wheat aromas have a wonderful toasted grain edge and follow through on a soft, supple entry to an off-dry medium body with dried cherry, raisin toast and vanilla accents. Finishes in a husky, nutshell, powdered sugar, tarragon, and peppery spice fade with a hint of vinyl. A fun, lively vodka that is sure to inspire flavorful cocktails or all types. 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.
