Farming is as important to Du Nord as it is to the state and nation. As a grain-to-glass distillery, we are especially dependent on farmers to provide the base grains from which we make our spirits. Du Nord is committed to working directly with farmers to source our grains and fermentables as locally as possible. Our commitment does not come without costs; it is much cheaper, and less time consuming, to bypass the farms and buy ethanol from large refineries. However, our spirits can be traced back to the fertile soil of a couple family farms and those farms receive needed support.
