Minnesota has always been … different.
Most people don’t know that farmers in Central Minnesota – from Stearns, Todd, Douglas, Morrison, and Benton Counties – made the best, most highly coveted moonshine whiskey of Prohibition. And the man who helped them do it wasn’t a mobster; he was a monk named Brother Justus.
We started our whiskey company because there was a whiskey in our imaginations that we couldn’t find on the shelves. A true Minnesota whiskey filled with the rich flavors and bold spirit of the North. A whiskey that is sweet and accessible like a bourbon, but with worlds to explore, like a scotch. A comfortable sipper to be savored on its own or as the centerpiece in a signature cocktail.
You can find Brother Justus Single Malt Whiskey at our underground distillery, store and tasting room in Northeast Minneapolis, and at select off sale and on sale retailers in the MSP Metro and Greater Minnesota. See map and list below.
You can buy our whiskey directly at our distillery during Store Hours, or purchase our whiskey online for later pickup. You can also purchase merchandise for shipping from our online store.
Please use the Contact Us form if you have any questions about how to find and buy our whiskey, including how to “demand Justus” at your favorite local bar or liquor store
