The Original Interior Alaskan Distillery

Dedicated to the perfect spirit.

The first distillery in Fairbanks and only the third in the State of Alaska, the folks at Ursa Major are dedicated to the fine craft of small-batch spirits. A self-taught distiller, Rob began creating spirits in 2012 and released Ursa's first vodka in 2013, with gin and rum following shortly. As a small, family-run business, Ursa Major Distilling is proud to be a part of the Interior Alaskan community.

The Ursa Major Distilling retail outlet and tasting room opened in the Greater Ester Industrial Area at 2922 Parks Highway in 2015 and remains one of Fairbanks' favorite destinations for crafted cocktails in a unique setting.
