Idaho Spirits Month

Celebrate Idaho Distilleries during July’s Idaho Spirits Month!

July not only brings us sunny beach weather, but also a spotlight of Idaho distilleries with the Governor proclaimed Idaho Spirits Month.  In its second year, Idaho Spirits Month celebrates homegrown distilleries and the varied and unique products being produced in the state. Seven Idaho distilleries, including Sandpoint’s own Mill Town Distillery, Grand Teton Distillery in Driggs, Koenig Distillery in 

Caldwell, Up North Distillery in Post Falls, 44º North Vodka in Boise, 8 Feathers in Boise, and Bardenay in Boise, came together recently to kick off the month with a tasting event.  

Idaho media and industry insiders attended the “Taste of Idaho Distillers” event on Tuesday, June 19 at Beside Bardenay in downtown Boise.  The Idaho Distillers Association (IDA) hosted this community outreach event to give participants a taste of hand-crafted Idaho spirits and cocktails.

“This is an important yearly event that allows Idaho distilleries to highlight the value of their products to Idaho consumers and to the state economy,” said Ken Wyatt, president of the

IDA and Co-Founder of 44º North Vodka.


The IDA strives to highlight the products being created in Idaho.  Distillers here take advantage of the abundance of clean water, and large variety of ingredients including grains, potatoes, and fruits that are key in producing quality spirits.  Idaho distilleries are helping to drive tourism, job and economic growth in not only their communities, but throughout the state and nationally as well.


Mill Town offers all of our products at all Idaho State Liquor Stores and will be taking part in several tasting events in the area.  These events are a great way to try before you buy and learn more about your local distillery. Watch our social media pages and website for upcoming events.  


To try these unique and delicious products, head to your local liquor store, ask for products crafted in Idaho and celebrate Idaho Spirits Month by drinking local.
