Greatest Place on Earth

Where is your Greatest Place on Earth? The Greatest Place on Earth Brand story begins in a small town in In the Midwest. Our small town is called Baraboo Wisconsin, a small town with a personality so large we are the self-proclaimed Greatest Place on Earth. Baraboo is the Greatest Place on Earth and it comes natural to us since we are the home to the Ringling Brothers Circus, because of our rich & colorful heritage, epic natural scenery and some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

The Greatest Place on Earth brand was born for a local church camp in the 1990s by one of our community mothers. Our cornerstone logo was resurrected in 2015 by a couple of our communities’ entrepreneurs. At first, we just wanted to sell a few T-shirts with this great Baraboo pride logo and then to our pleasant surprise The Greatest Place on Earth brand was born.

Locals loved the shirts and wanted more products that they could wear and use to show their community pride. Soon we began to see a social media movement. When people were headed out on vacation or just on a Saturday they grabbed their The Greatest Place on Earth shirts, hats and water bottles to take with them and they were hitting the social media waves to spread the community pride. Baraboo, The Greatest Place on Earth- we say it loud and proud here.

Update of Broken Bottle Winery

Broken Bottle is a  Wisconsin Dells Winery that is the perfect place to kick back and relax

Mother nature was kind to us the night we toured Broken Bottle winery and provided the perfect summer evening. In Wisconsin we like our outdoor drinking and those beautiful evenings that have just enough breeze to swirl summer smells and sounds in the warm air. We had so many great folks come out and many that were excited for out tie dye t-shirt launch, our newest shirts are light and soft making them perfect for warm weather days. While chatting with our favorite Greatest Place on Earth followers we got to hear Derek James singing some great tunes.  We loved the rustic country vibe and the large front yard that provides a space to play bag toss or just hang out. The large covered outdoor patio is the perfect place to just chill and listen to music. With wines like Summer Nights and On the Pier you know you’re in the right place to kick up your feet and relax.

Driftless Glen Distillery

Driftless Glen Distillery

The Driftless Glen Distillery in Baraboo, WI

 

This beautiful distillery is nestled along the Baraboo River and next to Circus World Museum. The architecture of the building is striking with a tall belfry on the front that houses the main stil. Once inside you are greeted with high ceilings and a beautiful half moon bar along with large windows to take in the view of the Baraboo River. If your wanting to enjoy the deck that aligns itself with the river, you have the option of sitting outside and listening to the sound of the cascading water.

Chosen for our great water and location, Baraboo is in the Driftless area of Wisconsin.The Driftless Area is located in the American Midwest including southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and northwestern Illinois. The area is noted by the deeply carved river valleys after having escaped glaciation in the last glacial period.

Owners Brian and Renee Bemis have done a wonderful job of creating a beautiful distillery and restaurant in Baraboo.  Baraboo locals are fortunate that we get to enjoy the distillery regularly with delicious food and and drink specials throughout the week while tourist make this a definite stop on their vacation.

The GPOE and Spa Serenity Driftless Glen Distillery Tour

GPOE  and Spa Serenity recently toured the Driftless Glen Distillery in Baraboo Wisconsin. Prior to beginning our tour we grabbed ourselves a drink from the beautifully lit  bar. There are so many delicious drinks to choose from.  From Martinis to Old Fashions, Driftless Glen Distillery does it right.

Their Old Fashions are amazing , along with the  Martinis, Whiskey Drinks, Bloody Mary’s and more. I love their Naughty pickle Martini it is a bloody mary in martini form , oh my YUM!  Another favorite is Weekend Vibes this drink screams summer, as you sip the sweet crispness of Driftless Glen Cucumber Vodka!  

We were then led into the barrel room and looked on in awe, the perfectly lined barrels reaching ceiling to floor is a jaw dropping site to see. Now time for the tasting, several samples were lined before us to enjoy. Scott gave us brief explanation of each sample, we tried Driftless Glen Cucumber flavored Vodka, Wiscongin, 5 year reserved Brandy, Bourbon Whiskey and Rivershine S’mores moonshine, they were all mouthwatering!  We had worked up an appetite and couldn’t wait to sit by the river and get some great food. We started with dessert and it was AMAZING! I think at this point I have actually tried almost all of the desserts at Driftless and they are all sinfully delicious. I would recommend them all, if your in a light mood try the key lime pie but if your wanting something to moan about then get the bourbon brownie. I have also eaten at the Distillery many times but on the day of the tour I enjoyed their burger for the first time and it was perfect, I had the cheesy butternut orzo as my side and I would absolutely have that meal again!  We parted ways and left happy and full, now that we have more knowledge about some of their liquors, we ladies have some new products we would like to try next time we dine and drink at the Distillery.
