Fruity mixed cocktail

Our Mission

Like our ancestors, the Dutch, who traded tastes in the form of spices, and our aviation pioneers, who made globalization possible, we intend to share our passion widely in the form of high-quality craft spirits – and amazing cocktails made from them.

Our Promise

To use our many years of brewing and tasting experience, modern technology, and sustainable processes to craft spirits that reflect our reverence for all of the places, cultures, food and drink discovered in our collective years of world travel.

Hagyo distiller

Our Process

In order to provide inspired flavors from around the world, minimize our environmental footprint, and create a consistently delicious product, we needed to embrace new technology. We scoured the globe and found Hagyó distilling in Miskolc, Hungary. Hagyó’s unsurpassed technology is so advanced it reduces our consumption of resources and improves the consistency and quality of our product. It’s so advanced that while we seek new product inspirations in other countries, we can control distillations as they occur in Eden Prairie!
