Proof66 Notes

Driftless Glen Navy Strength is the Wisconsin take on the English/Danish classic, juniper-driven gin but here bottled at 114 proof: the notorious proof at which it is said gunpowder will still ignite even if it is spilled on by gin. Driftless Glen uses botanicals of locally grown ginger and ginseng, which to us implies an unusual spiciness to the spirit.

Driftless Glen Distillery was founded in 2012 by Brian and Renee Bemis in Wisconsin in a land they say called to them for its "rich peat bogs," "amazing aquifer," and "uncommon sandy soil for our grains to grow in." According to the write-up in WiscNews (Craig Spychalla),the site of the distillery was chosen based upon water samples from the aquifers in the region and takes pride in sourcing the grains from the local Wisconsin area. The spirits were developed with the assistance of noted whiskey expert Dave Pickerell. Currently, Bemis is the sole owner of the distiller with Nik Flora as head distiller.
