Tattersall Distilling and Voyageurs Conservancy, the official nonprofit partner of Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park, recently announced the release of Voyageurs Five Grain Whiskey to celebrate the preservation of the national park’s dark skies.
The whiskey 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. The spirit is 90 proof at 45% ABV, with mellow notes of honey, cinnamon and hazelnut, according to official tasting notes.
“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,” Executive Director of the Voyageurs Conservancy Christina Hausman Rhode said in a prepared statement. “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.”
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. The certification recognizes the park for the quality of its dark night skies, its commitment to preserving darkness and the park’s education to the public.
With a limited release of 120 cases, Voyageurs Five Grain Whiskey is available in 750ml bottles for $50 at select retailers across Minnesota. 375ml bottles can also be purchased at Tattersall’s Northeast Minneapolis cocktail room for $30. Proceeds from the whiskey benefit the Voyagers Conservancy’s work to protect and preserve the park’s lands, waters and dark skies.
