Driftless Glen Straight Bourbon

£59.95

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 Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a true Small Batch and is their flagship spirit. These small batches consist of about twenty barrels, hand-selected by their distillers, and combined together.

Chosen from carefully selected barrels, it is balanced and full-bodied and is non-chill filtered to preserve its subtle spice and notes of caramel and vanilla.
