Heady Bella

Coffee Whiskey

A coffee whiskey firmly grounded in the Midwest.

Distillation Process

Heady Bella Coffee Whiskey celebrates the abundance of resources here in the Driftless Region. Organic rye grown by family farmers close by, milled and distilled at our geothermal powered distillery and aged in oak barrels on the banks of the Mississippi River. Ground espresso beans from our friends in Viroqua, WI at Wonderstate Coffee, and maple syrup tapped from the native trees of our majestic forests by Embark, are married together with our rye whiskey. We’re grateful for our talented neighbors, friends and farmers helping us create this 80 proof, organic coffee whiskey, born natural, free from any artificial ingredients or flavors.

Made In La Crosse

We are sourcing most of our ingredients for our spirits right here in our own backyard from local farmers. Our distiller is taking those locally sourced ingredients and distilling them at our facility in downtown La Crosse. Every step of the process is handcrafted and made in house.

Serve With

The locally roasted espresso flavors are apparent up front with additional notes of chocolate and hazelnut. The hint of whiskey lingers throughout and a touch of maple syrup balances the acidity and boldness of the espresso to finish with a kiss of sweetness. This spirit is enjoyed on its own or in a classic martini with a splash of black walnut bitters.

Our Handcrafted Spirits

This is our promise to be caretakers of this beautiful land. All of our spirits are made from organic ingredients and sourced from local and regional family farmers as much as possible. We work with farmers who are growing open-pollinated crops which support pollinator habitat and healthy soil as well as a healthy environment for us all. These heirloom and open-pollinated crops also produce deeper and richer flavor profiles. You will taste the difference.


The light music of whiskey falling into glasses made an agreeable interlude.
