So interesting to learn about a distillery and the staff were very friendly. But the star of the visit is definitely the tasting!!! Only $5 for the tour and tasting, best deal in town. We went here for "cocktail hour" before dinner at nearby restaurant.

The tour was about 45 minutes long, lots of interesting facts and some ability to see close up how they distill spirits here. The owner led the tour and was engaging, interesting and really helped us understand a ton about the history and process. A big highlight was seeing the process firsthand - peeking right into the gear. The tasting... More

This is a small distillery in Western WI. Nothing is wasted in production, everything is used local and returned local. Absolutely love the limoncello! They also have infused vodkas that are excellent with Bloody Marys. Will be going back to re-stock!

Four of us were looking for something interesting to do on a cold Saturday. Had thought of touring 45th Parallel for some time and finally did it. We learned a lot from a tour guide who has lived the distillation business and was willing to answer questions honestly and with a sense of humor.

Had a great time over the weekend at the 45th Parallel Distillery! The tour lasted ~ 45 minutes (and cost $5 per person). The tour guide was very informative - giving not only the history of the company, but also how their spirits are produced ("from grain to glass.") The best part was the tasting at the end, from their... More

Who would ever figure there would be a facility like this in such an area? Wonderful tour and learned so much about the distillation process. And afterwards they don't skip at all on the tastings. Let's just say life was good walking out of there.

Start-up distillery was very impressive! Thorough tour and explanation of entire distilling process. Up close and personal views of equipment and start to finish visuals of entire operation. Fun tasting room bar area to conclude the tour. Worth the value. Check out unique Aquavit liquor flavors! Cheers.

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent tour and tasting at 45th Parallel. Our tour guide, Tom, was very personable and knowledgeable. He clearly exuded passion for his job and the high quality products they produce. The informal tour lasted about 45 minutes with lots of time for Q&A and small samples of spirits at various stages of development.... More

We visited the distillery because I had purchased a Groupon. The tour was informative and interesting--I had never been to a distillery before, and enjoyed learning about the process of making different types of liquor. I appreciated the company's attention to detail and their partnerships with local farmers--one who grows their grain, and another who uses the distilling byproducts as... More
