A popular and fairly new distillery in Duluth is celebrating the launch of its Lake Superior Vodka.

Vikre Distillery held a launch party for the vodka at their Canal Park location in the Paulucci Building.

The locally-owned company was all about producing fresh gin but quickly learned there was another liquid in strong demand – vodka.

“One of the things we heard over and over again for people is you have to make vodka, you have to make vodka. So this is the vodka you asked for,” said Joe Vikre, owner of the distillery.

The vodka is made from malted barley, in collaboration with Bent Paddle, and it includes, of course, the fresh water of Lake Superior.
