Long Winter Vodka
Our flagship product. An exceptionally smooth, honest vodka made from 100% local barley. Long Winter Vodka has a slight strawberry nose, with clean, crisp vanilla notes at the finish. In 2014 Long Winter Vodka was awarded a silver medal for best domestic vodka in New York's The Fifty Best tasting.
Summer Harvest Gin
A traditional gin that is well balanced, with a long citrusy finish. It's made from the same local barley as our vodka, with the addition of select botanicals such as Juniper, Coriander, Iris Root, Mace, Cardamom and fresh Rhubarb grown on the distillery property. In 2014 Summer Harvest Gin was awarded a bronze medal in the American Craft Spirits Association first annual tasting.
Fairbanks Sourdough Rum
Alaska's 1st Rum! Fairbanks Sourdough Rum is a unique Alaskan experience. Instead of using commercial yeast, this rum is fermented using a sourdough that was started in Alaska more than 60 years ago. This is an honest rum, with no added sweeteners, spices or flavorings. Enjoy Alaskan history in every sip.
Delicious jams made with wild Alaskan blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. We also use our Fairbanks Sourdough Rum and a secret blend of spices to make our jams.
Ursa Major is about being local and being Alaska: it's spirits are big and bold like Alaska yet it's flavor distinction and unique character remind me of what is means to be from the Interior. Having a locally born distillery also allows me to know exactly where the roots of my favorite drinks a come from. I believe in the farm to table philosophy and all along its way from raw materials to final product, Ursa Major knows it's pathway and can reassure their customers that they share this vision. While I enjoy all of their liquors I especially enjoy the complexity of their gin which allows for easy mixing: you will want to enjoy the gin right from the bottle with only the hint of an extra mixer.

LOVE the Sourdough Rum. Super smooth and great alone or as a mixer. - Julie Novak, Brew Time, Fairbanks, AK
Had a tour today and sampled Long Winter Vodka and Summer Harvest Gin. My husband usually can't stand gin but he loved this one, and the rhubarb aroma alone sells it for me. Fabulous! - Jen Krzmarzick, Kitchen Vixen, Fairbanks, AK
Hands down the best gin I have ever experience.
