The National Association for Catering and Events - Southern Wisconsin Chapter and The Seeboth invite you to join us on Tuesday, January 19th.
This evening’s educational program will consist of Great Northern Distilling representatives conducting craft cocktail education with the help of
Bartenders on the Go!
Just north of the potato fields and east of the cranberry bogs, Great Northern Distilling sits at the gateway to the pineries of Wisconsin. These abundant lands have provided for generations of Wisconsinites. Rafts of logs floated down the mighty Wisconsin River to the sawmills that rebuilt Chicago after the Great Fire. Paper barons built massive mills that made the glossy coated paper for LIFE Magazine in the depths of the Great Depression. Now, at Great Northern Distilling these local resources are used as the foundation for handcrafted spirits.
Great Northern’s spirits are crafted in small batches in a handmade copper still. The process starts with sourcing the highest quality ingredients from local farmers. Whether it is potatoes for vodka, grain for whiskey or botanicals for gin, Great Northern is committed to sustainable sourcing from within 150 miles of the distillery.
Brian Cummins, a chemical engineer by trade, took a leap of faith by leaving his career at a local paper mill to become Great Northern’s head distiller and president. He spent a year committing himself to researching the science and mechanics of distillation and to the development of a business plan. With a plan in place he forged together a team who shared both his vision and passion for developing unique and distinctive spirits using local products and local talents.

With a mission to build a strong community by strengthening individuals, families, and the neighborhood, Neighborhood House has been on the front lines in the fight against inner-city poverty in Milwaukee for 70 years.
Founded in 1945 as a safe and nurturing place for urban youth, families and seniors, Neighborhood House has grown into a modern, 60,000 square-foot facility that has served more than a third million children and adults. Today NH serves over 4,000 people annually and provides accredited preschools, programs for kids, teens, and families.
