Award-Winning Hand Crafted Spirits

 

Great Lakes Distillery is a small-batch distillery located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We hand craft award-winning distilled spirits in limited quantities using old world methods andtraditions which we believe result in a superior product.

 

The First Distillery In Wisconsin Since Prohibition

We’re a handful of people devoted to the craft of distilling and creating the best distilled spirits possible. Founder Guy Rehorst started Great Lakes Distillery in 2004 with a commitment to making truly original craft spirits that have "a little Wisconsin" in every drop. When possible we go to every length to use local ingredients to make local craft spirits. This "Grain-to-glass process brings truly unique local flavor to each spirit. Our award-winning Gin uses botanicals from central Wisconsin, our Cranberry Liqueur uses cranberries from central Wisconsin bogs, our whiskey is made with grain from Dodge County and is milled by hand in Jackson, WI. Check out each product to see what bit of Wisconsin is in it! As Wisconsin’s original small batch distillery we are anxious to share our unique products and look forward to meeting people who appreciate high quality craft distilled spirits. Give us a try and see for yourself how unique these hand crafted spirits can be.
