Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River in western Wisconsin, La Crosse is at the heart of the Driftless Region. During the last Ice Age, when the surrounding land was scraped flat by glaciers, this area remained untouched, creating a unique bioregion. Comprised of bluffs, river valleys, and hillside prairies, the Driftless Region is perfect for small-scale, quality-focused farming. La Crosse Distilling Co. was created to capture the heart and history of this region while producing handcrafted field-to-glass spirits.
Midwestern conservationist Aldo Leopold once said, “When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” Driftless Pure is our promise to use organic ingredients, employ sustainable practices and focus on authentic quality. We partner with family farmers who share our values. Using this Farmer Forward approach, we source ingredients from those who work with heirloom seeds and rely on vital pollinators like hummingbirds, bees and butterflies; helping us produce the deep and rich flavor profiles in each of the bottles we distill.
At La Crosse Distilling Co. we source our water locally from the region's glacial aquifers, seek only the finest organic ingredients and obsess over every detail; making each of our spirits a unique expression of a particular place, a farmer’s passion and our careful work. Join us at our new geothermal powered distillery and tasting room where Genuine Wisconsin Spirit is captured in every sip.
