Glacial Grain Spirits

Since its pilot year in 1998, Glacial Grain Spirits (GGS) has become one of the highest grossing sub-groups of Chippewa Valley Ethanol Co., LLLP. Glacial Grain Spirits manufactures industrial, food grade ethyl alcohol and beverage neutral spirits. These products are used in everything from food and beverages to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. GGS remains one of the only farmer-owned manufacturers of industrial and beverage alcohol products in the U.S.

You may not know it, but the alcohol GGS produces is in many of the products you use to keep your household healthy. During flu season, it is the ingredient in hand sanitizers that you rely on. Some home cleaners are nearly 80 percent ethyl alcohol. Antibiotics, vitamins and vaccine all depend on GGS alcohols to function properly.

GGS is both kosher and organic certified. From local farms, to the GGS production line, the organic and kosher ethanol follows all the regulations and requirements to maintain its superior quality. Because of these rigorous stands, GGS is able to market to some of the highest-end cosmetic companies.
