Scott Lindquist (Owner/Founder) grew up as an adventurist in the Pacific Northwest and worked in the Alaska commercial fishing industry for most of his career. His first experience to the north was given by his brother, Mike, who presented an opportunity to board a 155-foot wooden ship, named M/V Aleutian Dragon, that was docked in Ballard, Washington. The M/V Aleutian Dragon was headed north, to Alaska, to process Herring and Copper River Red Salmon in Prince William Sound.
During this time, Scott saw his first iceberg, in front of Columbia Glacier, in 1981 and was overcome by their purity and beauty. After requesting that the Captain steer closer, he had the opportunity to chip-off a chunk of iceberg. He was amazed at the density of such a small piece of ice. Holding the mini iceberg up to the sun, Scott looked through it and could see crystals, prisms, and small compressed air bubbles trapped inside the ice.
At that moment, Scott knew he had to share this precious commodity with the world.
