Embracing the craftsmanship of the past while creating new expressions of flavor is what we're highlighting with our Wisconsin's Original Craft Cocktails. These signature cocktails are carefully curated to bring high quality spirits together with a little imagination.

Driftless Glen Distillery

Driftless Glen Distillery is an award-winning craft distillery in Baraboo, WI. They are located at the edge of the Driftless Area, a unique topographical part of the state that was missed by the last glaciation 15,000 years ago and that now has rugged hills, deep river valleys, rich prairies, and abundant limestone. This local terroir offers not only prime conditions to grow grains, but also a natural sandstone aquifer, allowing them to source grain and water locally and produce their whiskey 100% grain-to-glass. Share their dream and “Taste the American Spirit.”

Our exclusive Driftless Glen Single Barrel Bourbon was tasted, hand selected by, and bottled exclusively for The Abbey Resort. This small batch bourbon has strong caramel notes that pair perfectly with the sweetness of the Wisconsin maple syrup in our exclusive old fashioned. Try it in that or any of the other cocktails below, or on its own over ice.
