Apple of My Rye

A smooth drink that feels both cozy and refreshing to sip, on a cold fall day. With house-made rye whiskey, spiced apple syrup, and fresh lemon, this tasty Great Northern original will leave you wanting more.

Espresso Martini Part II: Autumn

If the feelings of being snuggled up at home in front of the fire were a drink, it would be Espresso Martini Part II: Autumn. This drink is incredibly flavorful yet balanced. It has potato vodka, Ruby Coffee Roasters Creamery cold brew blend, coffee liqueur, and allspice dram, then it is topped with black walnut pumpkin cream, and cinnamon

GND Old Fashioned

Take a Wisconsin staple and elevate it with Great Northern Distilling's Old Fashioned. Featuring all the makings of a great old fashioned, you'll also find a hint of another local maker in this drink - maple syrup from Tapped!
