The Dakota County Historical Society will host a presentation by Far North Spirits at the LeDuc Historic Estate on Friday, July 7, 7-9 p.m. Admission to the event is $40 per person, or $35 for members of the Dakota County Historical Society.
Far North Spirits is located in Hallock, Minn. and is located on the farm that Gustaf and Anna Christine settled on 100 years ago. Using the land of their ancestors, Michael Swanson and Cheri Reese use Michael’s fourth-generation family farm to plant and harvest non-GMO grains for their spirits. They also mill, mash, ferment, distill and bottle all spirits entirely from start to finish.
The evening will consist of live music throughout the night, as participants listen to how Far North Spirits plans to bring historic grains back into the distillery world. Participants also will have the opportunity to sample five spirits, paired specifically with delicious food prepared in the LeDuc Estate’s kitchen.
The Dakota County Historical Society, which collects, preserves, promotes and presents Dakota County history, includes three historical sites: the LeDuc Historical Estate, the Sibley Historical Site in Mendota, Minn and the Lawshe Memorial Museum in South St. Paul, Minn.
