Monk's Road

Fifth District Series

With the Monk’s Road Fifth District Series, we tip our hat to the historic tax district of Central Kentucky, deeply seeped in bourbon lore. With this rotating series of hand-selected spirits, we honor a long line of rotating bluegrass-inspired bourbons created with the same ingenuity and fortitude made famous by our patriarch Joseph Washington Dant. So, just this once, let’s celebrate the taxman.
Monk''s Road Lost Distillery Series

Cold Spring Distillery


Image
This first-release bourbon pays homage to Cold Spring Distillery, a historic distillery founded in the 1800s on land where we are currently located in southern Nelson County, Ky. The Cold Spring name harkened back to the spring where, even in the summer, the water stayed cool enough that the distillery could continue to operate.

Bold and brash right out of the gate with a twinge of clove, nutmeg, and allspice. It follows with hints of coconut, apple, vanilla, and caramel and a firm mouthfeel of considerable maturity.


Monk's Road Dry Gin

DRY GIN


Image
Our essential gin is a unique offering from the rolling hills of Kentucky, with a delicate balance of complementary botanicals, creating the perfect gin for all seasons and palates.

Sweet and tangy lemon peel with complex earthiness and spice. A hint of juniper brings it all around in a harmoniously bright blend.
Monk's Road Barrel Aged Gin

Barrel Finished Gin


Image
Smooth and complex with a subtle waft of smoke, Monk’s Road Barrel Finished Gin nods to the pride of place, tradition, and legacy for which the Dant family is known.

Rich in oaky aroma, with vanilla and warm mulling spices that leave the juniper pleasantly in the background. Overall, a satiny texture polished by distinct barrel aging.

RYE WHISKEY

Image
Approachable in style and faithful in spirit, Monk’s Road Rye Whiskey pleases the palates of rye and bourbon lovers alike. We’ve blended rye with a higher percentage of corn and barley, resulting in a traditional Kentucky rye that balances toasty bread flavor and spice with a pleasing note of corn sweetness.

WHEATED BOURBON

MAKE YOUR OWN LUCK

Rattle and Snap – the forgotten Southern game of chance. More than a few fortunes were won and lost on this risky Southern diversion.

So, when it comes to making whiskey, when it comes to taking risks, and when it comes to boldly doing things our own way, you could say we were born into it.
