The story of Driftless Glen begins with an idealist and a solid couple. In the early 2010s, Brian and Reneé Bemis were approached by Mike Weckerly who was casting around the upper midwest for a location to start a distillery. Weckerly was in his twenties and came across Baraboo and the Driftless corner of Wisconsin for the quality of its water, grain, and location near the Wisconsin Dells. The Bemis’ were from Baraboo and sold on Mike’s dream for a distillery in their corner of the state. With help from Dave Pickerell, the pied piper of craft whiskey, the distillery opened in 2015 along the Baraboo river with gleaming Vendome copper and rickhouse space for over 4000 barrels. Mike’s early idealism sadly did not have staying power and he parted ways with the distillery leaving Brian and Reneé as sole proprietors. They have invested in those that learned at the distillery and today local bearded gentlemen Nathan Mahinski and Max Thibodeax are head distillers. Describing their work as remedial chemistry, Nathan and Max are most excited about their ageing stocks of Bourbon and Rye, while also producing the seemingly obligatory Vodka, Gin, and Moonshine.

One of the things that we love about the little guys and the open source nature of the craft distillery movement is their openness and joy about sharing how they make their product. While Buffalo Trace will not even confirm basic things like their recipe, places like Driftless Glen will tell you all you may want to know from grain source to bottling. Michael Kennel, D&M
