Deaths Door Distillery
Death's Door Spirits is a super-premium spirits company that takes its names from the most treacherous waterway in the Great Lakes, which separates Washington Island from the Door County peninsula in northern Wisconsin - a stretch called "Death’s Door Passage. Originally conceived as an economic development project in 2005, Death’s Door was founded by Brian Ellison in conjunction with families on Washington Island to offer a sustainable future through agriculture - specifically, the growing and harvesting of organic hard red winter wheat. What started as five acres under cultivation has grown to 1,200 acres today. In addition to wheat, Death’s Door sources wild juniper berries from Washington Island for production in its gin. Death's Door Spirits is committed to working with local farmers to create truly exceptional spirits.
