What's with the name Death's Door Spirits?

"Death’s Door" takes its name of the body of water between Door County peninsula and Washington Island from which we get hard red winter wheat to make our vodka, gin and white whisky. Potowatami and Winnebego tribesmen originally named the waterway, while the French called it Port de Morts when trading in the area to ward off other traders.

Since our inception, Death’s Door Spirits has been committed to donating 1% of annual revenue to Great Lakes causes, including our work with the Alliance for the Great Lakes. In 2015, Death's Door became a member organization of 1% for the Planet, continuing our efforts in water conservation yet expanding our efforts around the globe. 

Are your products gluten free?

According to the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau - the governing body under the US Department of Treasury), we can't certify our products gluten free. While our products are distilled from grain, the gluten breaks down in the distillation process, essentially making all distilled spirits gluten free.

Are your products organic?

While we source our ingredients from organic farms, our products cannot be certified organic until we complete the process, which is currently underway and expected to be completed in 2015. Watch Death's Door's Twitter for any updates on this process.

Who designed your bottles?

The bottled was designed by our founder, Brian Ellison along with our glassware partner Anchor Hocking.  See the video about our new bottles here
