Wineries & Distilleries

Like the city’s many local breweries, Anchorage wineries and distilleries are working with a superpowered ingredient: crystal-clear glacial water sourced from nearby Eklutna Lake.

Unique Alaska Ingredients

Besides fresh glacier-fed lake water, Anchorage wineries and distilleries tap into locally sourced ingredients ranging from Delta Junction barley and Matanuska Valley wheat to Alaska-grown berries and fruit. Combine those fresh Alaska flavors with time-tested distilling and winemaking methods and innovative, creative recipes, and you have a rainbow of unique drinks overflowing with a distinctly Anchorage character. Sip a flight on premises or pick up a bottle to savor later or give as a gift: Local wineries and distilleries will keep you satisfied.

Anchorage wineries such as Alaska Denali Winery put good time in a glass with surprising varietals, and even a few local fruits available. Make your own small batch at the on-premise wine-making facility or enjoy a special tasting. Anchorage Distillery and other local distillers use the best ingredients to get everyone into the "spirit." Try a sample or purchase a unique souvenir directly from the source.
