Driftless Glen Single Barrel Rye 125 proof (62.5%)
Driftless Glen Single Barrel Straight Rye: This 125 proof (62.5% abv) Single Barrel offering is limited to a handful of cases in the UK. Aged for a minimum of 5 years, it’s also quite tasty. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Located in the Baraboo Valley of Wisconsin, Driftless Glen Distillery is located in the region known as the Driftless Area which escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the ice age. It’s a harsh geographical area in stark contrast to the flatness of the broader Midwest and central Plains regions. The region is rich with peat, has a wonderful aquifer, and uncommon sandy soil for the distillery’s grains to grow in. These unique conditions provide a favourable environment for the production of high-quality spirits.
The company produces all of its whiskey from locally sourced grain. The distillery age their whiskey in 25 and 30 gallon barrels in order to accelerate the maturation which explains the rich depth of colour.
This Driftless Glen Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey is hand-selected by their distillers, from one barrel, and at cask strength, exactly as nature intended.
Chosen very carefully, it is balanced and full-bodied and is non-chill filtered to preserve its subtle spice and notes.
