Located at 414 4th Ave N. in downtown Fargo, Proof Artisan Distillers is in the business of making spirits.

Vodkas, gin, whiskey and liqueurs to be exact. And soon Proof will be adding bourbon to the list of products you can purchase.  

The micro distillery opened in September of 2016 and owner and distiller Joel Kath’s vision for a tasting room and restaurant alongside a distillery is a unique experience. The tasting room acts as a showcase for the locally crafted spirits. A tapas menu is also available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

“I’m really a purist in distilling what’s local,” says Kath.

All of Proofs products are produced from natural ingredients and locally grown products including  Red River Valley potatoes.  

“From day one, and it will be forever, is that we are about quality and it is the quality of the alcohol. We want it to be as perfect as we can make it,”  says Kath.
