Great Northern Distilling
Artful (and local) Mixology
Great Northern Distilling elevates the cocktail to an art form, in their mixology bar, where you can get a taste before or after a tour. As the region’s first and only distillery, they are committed to small batches using high-quality ingredients from local farmers, including local potatoes for its iconic vodka. Great Northern Distilling has released a vodka, rum, whiskey, and a gin, with an old-fashioned brandy in development with Sunset Point Winery.
Where to Find It?
Great Northern Distilling is located at 1740 Park Avenue in Plover. The distillery is located close to O’so Brewing Company at Village Park in Plover. The distillery offers great views of the iconic copper still, just off of the mixology bar and lounge area. Tours are regularly available on Saturday to get a closer look behind the scenes.
Take a Tour
Join a tour on Saturday at 1pm, 2pm, or 3pm to take a peek behind the scenes of the distillery. They last approximately 45 minutes, and include one signature craft cocktail. No reservations are necessary for groups of 10 or less. Learn more here.
The iconic copper still might have smooth rounded edges, but don’t expect to find that on Great Northern’s bottle, which is an unusual square-shaped bottle.
Local flavor is handmade here, including all of the mix-ins from ginger beer to other infused products used in the mixology bar.
It might be new (in comparison to the Stevens Point Brewery brewing since 1857), but the potato vodka is award-winning, as the distillery’s vodka received a medal during the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
