Wineries & Distilleries
Like the city’s many local breweries, Anchorage wineries, meaderies, 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, distilleries, and meaderies 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 Anchorage character. Sip a flight on premises or pick up a bottle to savor later or give as a gift: Local meaderies, wineries, and distilleries will keep you satisfied.
Alaska meaderies put good time in a glass with surprising varietals. A visit to Two Seasons Meadery can introduce you to the fascinating history and modern techniques of making "honey wine." 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.
