 After 154 years, the wait is almost over.
 We’re proud to be Minnesota’s first legal whiskey distillery. And we can’t think of a better place to make the finest tasting whiskey and spirits.Lush golden corn. Crisp clear water. Rich golden wheat. While you’re relaxing by the lake, we’ll use the wealth of natural resources in our backyard to craft the finestdistilled spirits this state has ever seen.
It’s about time.

ou’ve noticed it– the shadows lengthening and the days grow-ing shorter. The days are still steamy, but there’s that little bitof coolness to the evenings. There’s a little nostalgia as coolerair brings back childhood memories – the excitement of return-ing to school tinged with a little sadness at the end of summer fun.Summer is coming to an end, and with that endcomes the final Vacationer issue for this year.But the change in seasons doesn’t bring an endto the fun here in the lakes are. Still ahead of us isfair time– 4-H exhibits, carnival rides and cottoncandy – an event that has always, to me, been thekickoff to autumn.Autumn. I love when fall brings crisp leavesthat crunch under my shoes as I walk along thetrail at a state park or listen to the sound of geeseas they gather for their southbound journey.Autumn also brings apple picking – crisp, juicy apples that makeyour mouth water – and the bounty ofwonderfully fresh produce that can befound at local farmers’ markets.Maybe one of my favorite things about autumn are the bazaars andchurch suppers at this time of year. Great crafts, great food, great peo-ple – what’s not to love?So browse through our final Vacationer and see what’s waiting foryou. It’s a great time to be here and you won’t be disappointed thatyou’ve decided to spend these days with us.
“By all these lovely tokensSeptember days are here. With summer’s best of weatherAnd autumn’s best of cheer.”
