Duluth's first legal distillery since prohibition has opened its doors.

Vikre Distillery has already released a line of gins and an aquavit, a Scandinavian caraway-flavored spirit. On Memorial Day weekend, though, it also opened the doors of its touring and tasting room.

"I think it's great that people are getting into our gin and our aquavit and are happy to support local and try new cocktails, new tasting experiences," said Emily Vikre, co-founder of the distillery. "It's been wonderful, and I think we've converted a few non-gin-drinkers into gin drinkers, even."

The distillery will now be open in Wednesday through Sunday in the afternoon.
