"Driftless Glen is set just around the hillsides of the Baraboo valley, purposely nestled along the river which flows as smoothly as the spirits that are distilled inside. At Driftless Glen 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 didn’t choose our home for the Driftless Glen distillery. Rather we discovered a bountiful region rich with peat, bogs, an amazing aquifer, and uncommon sandy soil for our grains to grow in. Now people come from throughout the country to discover this region for themselves and tour the refined distillation and tasting experience we offer. 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. Come visit us on the banks of the Baraboo River, the longest mainstream restored free flowing river in America, and witness the masterful distilling process we use to bring our unique spirits to life. 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. Using grain and water from the Driftless Region, we produce and barrel bourbon or rye daily, and we are always happy to demonstrate how important superior distillation is to us. Come and share our dream “Taste the American Spirit”."
Aged 5 years. Brandy is sourced from France, aged in French oak barrels for 3 years, and then brought to WI. There the brandy ages for 2 more years in spent bourbon casks. The brandy drinks more like a cognac, with raisin, clove, and earthy tones that a balanced by the vanilla and spice offered by the spent bourbon casks. Driftless Glen’s quest for the perfect grape took us to France, where the fruit was barreled onsite and aged for five years in French oak. We brought it to Baraboo, Wisconsin, cask-finished it in used bourbon barrels, giving our Brandy the depth and character of color, nose, and finish – meriting our Reserve distinction. Born in France. Finished at the edge of the Driftless Area. Our brandy is characterized with notes of vanilla, caramel, and cherry with a smooth, warm finish.
