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.
To achieve this, we start with pure barley, the grain of the North, richly malted for full flavor here in Minnesota. We brew and ferment the barley malt slowly over several days to produce a distiller’s beer packed with flavor and texture (and, of course, alcohol). Then we painstakingly distill our beer over the course of a day, making only the choicest selections to produce a well-balanced clear whiskey containing notes of caramel, banana, cocoa, vanilla, and lime. We fill a few bottles of this pure whiskey to sell from our distillery as Brother Justus Single Malt Silver.
