Founded in 2015, Up North Distillery is an award-winning small-batch farm-to-flask distillery located in Northern Idaho. Our unique spirits showcase the terroir of the Inland Northwest.

Our Flagship Line Of Spirits.

Up North Distillery is one of six distilleries nationwide that manufactures spirits using 100% honey in the mash. We first create meade and then distill it. Handcrafted and distilled from 100% pure honey, yet never sweet, this clear libation is a new addition to the world of spirits. Thanks to the pristine nature of honey, its delicate and distinct taste is unparalleled.


Up North’s Honey Spirits are smooth and full-flavored using small-batch copper pot distillation. Excellent for sipping neat and a fantastic cocktail ingredient.

North Idaho Pine Liqueur

We climb trees and hand forage pinecones from North Idaho White Pine trees in our favorite spot on the Coeur d'Alene River, when they are in their perfect season and color.

This delicious liqueur is truly the spirit of North Idaho in a liquid form.
