Careers & Cocktails was thrilled to hit the road and go on-site to Wander North Distillery located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Brian Winter, the Founder and Owner of Wander North and taste his key products including vodka, gin and barreled gin - all of which are made from 100% Minnesota grown corn. #drinklocal
Brian shares his journey of retiring from the Army as a Major and discusses the challenges and successes of becoming his own boss as he embarked on his next chapter as the Owner and Operator of Wander North Distillery.
One of Brian's favorite quotes is by JRR Tolkien, "Not all those who wander are lost" and that is at the core of his business. The name Wander North is tied to their philosophy that people should push boundaries in order to find their own way.
Cheers to that Brian!
