A smooth, cool flavor, meant to distinguish.
Driftless Glen’s Rye Whiskey imparts what many call a spicy yet fruit flavor profile. Our Rye Whiskey combination sweetens and entices. Each barrel of rye bottled is hand picked, by taste. Rye Whiskey is handcrafted using local ingredients from the Midwest. The Driftless area is distinctive to the rest of the world due to its combination of temperature, water, and soil. Harboring the grain and water, this blend provides the perfect terroir necessary to make a matchless expression of Rye Whiskey.
Driftless Glen Distillery is an award-winning craft distillery in Baraboo, WI, nestled among the Baraboo Hills and along the banks of the Baraboo River. Most recently rated by Whisky Advocate with a “90” for Bourbon Whiskey, the company has been named “Wisconsin Distillery of the Year” by New York International Spirits Competition and shared as a “Top Ten US Spirits Brand You Must Try” by London Spirits Competition. Their grain-to-glass process uses Midwest grain and water from the Driftless Area to produce their full range of products, including whiskey, brandy, vodka, and gin. They take pride in their refined double-distillation process that includes a 10,000 pound, 44-ft tall column still along with their one-of-a-kind pot still, and recycle 100% of their by-product. Share their dream and “Taste the American Spirit”.
Where does your passion for craft spirit distilling come from?
Our passion for craft spirits is made on the idea of quality rather than cutting costs, and that can be seen - and felt - with the imprint of the owners' fingerprints on every single bottle that leaves the rackhouse.
What inspired you to share your craft with the world?
Our goal is to make spirits just as unique as the people who taste them, so when we searched the country for a terroir harboring the grain and water necessary to make a matchless expression of bourbon and rye, we couldn’t ignore the Driftless Area in Wisconsin. We are passionate about sharing our hand-crafted, quality products and hope that others can "Taste the American Spirit".
What makes your distillery unique?
Our edge of the Driftless Area is known as Sand County, and is distinctive from the rest of the world because of the specific combination of temperature, water, soil, and weather and which all combine to form our remarkable spirits. We use Midwest grain and water from the Driftless Region to emphasize the importance of the local terroir.
What makes your method(s) of distilling special?
We take pride in our refined double distillation process that includes a 10,000 pound, 44 foot tall column still along with our one-of-a-kind pot still. We are a 0% waste distillery as we recycle 100% of the byproduct. Our spent mash and grain byproducts go to feed livestock at a local farm, and the rest goes to an anaerobic digester to convert back into energy. We also keep our used barrels to sell to breweries for unique brews, to finish our brandy and gin, and to sell.
What’s in the future for your distillery?
We have lots of exciting things to look forward to here at Driftless Glen! Our 5-year products were released this year, and we also have some limited-release spirits up our sleeve. At the moment, we are working hard to expand our distribution beyond its current reach.
