Driftless Glen Straight Rye Whiskey


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 Rye Whiskey is a true Small Batch and consists of about twenty barrels, hand-selected by their distillers, and combined together. This is bottled at 96 proof.

This high rye mash bill of their small batch preserves the grain’s distinct spice, even after years of age in their Wisconsin rackhouse. Caramel and chocolate notes from the malt round out this carefully-formulated batch

Chosen from carefully selected barrels, it is balanced and full-bodied and is non-chill filtered to preserve its flavour.
