Located at the narrows of Lake Leelanau, Michigan, Northern Latitudes Distillery is creating extraordinary spirits one small batch at a time. 

The tasting room, located on M‑204 in the village of Lake Leelanau, is as unique as the spirits that are created on-site. From the slab wood beams, to the massive black ash bartops, the room has that unique “where the North begins” feel.
