Inspired by the DEATH'S DOOR passageway between WASHINGTON ISLAND and the Door County peninsula, Death's Door Spirits is committed to working with LOCAL FARMERS to create truly exceptional spirits.

Through the assistance of the Michael Fields Institute, a specific variety of wheat was selected for the island that would grow well in the unique maritime conditions on the Island.

The two very distinct varieties of hard, red winter wheat were selected; Harvard and Carlisle. Hard, red winter wheat is generally used in making breads and all purpose flours.
