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.
