      Driftless Glen is getting a lot of attention lately, especially after being named one of the six best bourbons outside of Kentucky by Whiskey Advocate in 2021.  A small cult distillery that is really hitting its stride.  Fermentations are relatively long, between four and six days. The whiskey is distilled in a 500-gallon pot still and a 42 foot, 18 inch diameter column still, both from Vendome Copper & Brass Works.  And whiskey is aged in full-sized 53 gallons barrels.

      For their port finished bourbon, the whiskey is aged for four years and then finished in ex-port barrels.  The 100 proof balances the juicy tartness of blackberry and currants.  Hints of cocoa, tobacco, and clove.  Not for the faint of heart.
