45th Parallel is a small, family-owned craft distillery in New Richmond, Wisconsin. When we opened our doors in 2007, we were one of 50 craft distilleries in the United States–there are now more than 1,000.
Our facility has experienced consistent growth over the years, doubling in both physical size and production capacity on more than one occasion. We went from making a single vodka to producing dozens of different spirits, including gins, whiskeys, aquavits, and citrus liqueurs.
Our name comes from the fact that we’re located on the 45th parallel, halfway between the equator and the north pole.
Our mission is to create high quality spirits using local ingredients when possible, and to provide visitors with a great experience.
