We have visited Old Sugar a few times and think the drinks are awesome! Very good bartenders for the most part, although had one experience with one that was not a "people person".

The staff was awesome and the drinks as well. I will definitely return.

I have only been here a couple of times (I live far away!), but it's a great, friendly, and cool spot in Madison, one of my favorite escapes. I'll definitely return for great drinks, great products, great people.

About Old Sugar Distillery

Nathan Greenawalt has found a home in Madison. And that's a fortunate thing for fans of craft cocktails and small-batch spirits. Although Greenawalt first moved to the area as an undergrad at UW Madison, he stuck around, opened Old Sugar Distillery in 2010, and has spent the years since paying tribute to the area with each of his spirits. Old sugar is also known for its fantastic cocktails, winning "Favorite Craft Cocktail" by readers of the Isthmus.

  • Queen Jennie: Named after Madison's Queen of Bootleggers, Jenny Justo, Queen Jennie is a sorghum whiskey made from 100% Wisconsin sorghum, which results in a flavor that's less sour than bourbon and less harsh than rye.
  • Cane & Abe: This small-barrel rum is distilled solely from domestically grown dark-brown cane sugar, then fermented and distilled in house before it's aged in American oak barrels. The results are smooth and robust.
  • Old Sugar Factory Honey Liqueur: Isthmus praised the distillery for its bold, clean spirits. "Even Old Sugar's honey liqueur manages to avoid syrupy sweetness, instead showing off the floral, herbaceous character of the honey for a surprisingly delightful drink base."
  • Americanaki Ouzo: A nod to Greenawalt's family tradition of drinking ouzo during the holidays, this Greek aperitif is rarely made in the US. But it's delicious. As Chicago Tribune wrote, "It has a pronounced black licorice aroma and a sweet, anise flavor when sipped."
  • Brandy Station: More brandy is consumed in Wisconsin than anywhere else in the world, so Greenawalt wanted to make the state its own variety. It's aged in medium-toast barrels before moving to charred barrels.
