Ursa Major Rum

        Hand crafted local spirits


Rob and Tara Borland are proud members of the Fairbanks community and feel lucky to call it home.  Rob is a lifelong Alaskan who grew up in Homer and came up to Fairbanks to attend UAF where he completed two degrees in Emergency Services and Municipal Fire Control.  Tara grew up on the East Coast in New Jersey and moved to Fairbanks to attend UAF where she completed a graduate degree in Chemical Oceanography.  Together they built a house, a family and most recently a distillery.


Rob began our distillery with the goal of providing you with high quality, ultra pure, premium handmade local spirits.  As our business expands we will continue to emphasize quality over quantity.  Our goal is not to be the largest distillery in Alaska but to be the best.
