Minnesota distillery Tattersall Distilling has partnered with Voyageurs Conservancy, the official nonprofit partner of Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park, to release Voyageurs Five Grain Whiskey.
Created to celebrate the preservation of Voyageurs National Park’s dark skies, the limited-edition release is distilled from a blend of five grains including rye, wheat, oat, corn and barley before being aged for nearly three years in charred Minnesota white oak barrels.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Voyageurs Conservancy to create this incredibly unique whiskey,” says Jon Kreidler, founder, and chief officer of Tattersall Distilling. “We’re honoured to commemorate all of the hard work that has been put into preserving one of Minnesota’s and our country’s truly special places.”
In December 2020, Voyageurs National Park, Voyageurs Conservancy and the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) announced the certification of Voyageurs National Park as an International Dark Sky Park. This recognizes Voyageurs National Park for the exceptional quality of its dark night skies, for the park’s commitment to preserving darkness and educating the public about this outstanding resource.
“Voyageurs National Park has some of the darkest skies in the region, allowing visitors to take in millions of stars, views of the Milky Way and occasionally dancing Northern Lights,” says Christina Hausman Rhode, executive director of the Voyageurs Conservancy. “We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Voyageurs’ certification as a Dark Sky Park with Tattersall, a valued partner with conservation values helping us preserve the park’s lands, waters and skies.”
Proceeds from the whiskey benefit the Voyagers Conservancy’s work to protect and preserve the park’s lands, waters and dark skies.
