Now nearly 70 years old, Alaska Distributors employs 500 people and distributes spirits, wine, beer and non-alcoholic products in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Its product line is diverse-ranging from international brands of spirits and wines to microbrewed beers. With roughly 5000 customers spread over five states, the sales force is kept active.
