LEELANAU LUAU Macadamia Nut Liqueur Limited Edition
We are bringing the Aloha Spirit to the Leelanau region with a spirit created from Hawaii's nuttiest export! Leelanau Luau is made from Hawaiian macadamia nuts, dark brown sugar, local honey, and our finest neutral spirits. Soon available again at our Lake Leelanau distillery in 375ml bottles. Come and taste soon!
(Just 3 weeks after its release, Leelanau Luau is sold out! Mark is working on a second run that should be available by late August.)
BERNIE'S BRANDY - Limited Edition
Bernie’s Brandy is a tribute to the man who started the wine industry here on the Leelanau Peninsula, Bernie Rink. Sadly, Bernie's winery, Boskydel, has recently closed its doors, but not before Mark and Andy Rink (Bernie's son) collaborated to create Bernie's Brandy using 100% Boskydel wine and Mark's distillation know-how to distill and barrel age this special spirit! We believe this brandy captures the spirit of both this iconic vineyard and its founder.
Northern Latitudes Distillery sits on what locals call "The Narrows," the natural channel connecting the northern and southern parts of Lake Leelanau. We thought it appropriate to name a spirit in honor of our unique location. NLD's newest release, The Narrows, connects two of our most popular spirits; we aged our Jack Pine Gin in Latitudes Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrels. The result is a completely new and mellow spirit with beautiful notes of oak.
Northern Latitudes Distillery is pleased to welcome back free tastings, our cocktail bar, and most of all, our wonderful customers! Along with our indoor and front porch seating, we have added our backyard to the options! This beautifully tree lined grassy lawn now boasts a large tent, so customers can choose to sit in the cool shade or warm sun. Rain or shine, the varied seating options make NLD a great place to enjoy a cocktail and hang out! Thank you to all who have stuck with us through the many changes throughout 2020 and 2021. We appreciate your flexibility and your support!
