Adjacent to the Skagway airstrip you'll find a family owned craft distillery producing very smooth Gin & Vodka beginning 2017. Features unique cocktails using local botanicals in a warm setting that honors Skagway's more recent past.

This was off the beaten path and I didn’t find it until my trip was almost over but the cocktails are worthy of a Manhattan club. They use local herbs and plants for their concoctions. I was introduced to a rhubarb syrup that was divine.

Take a break from the bustle of downtown Skagway and head over to the cheerful yet subdued ambience of Skagway Spirits. Excellent gin served here. Great conversation. 100% local hospitality. Ask Lucas and he’ll mak you excellent (off menu) Negroni.
