A Whiskey Social Club!

A Whiskey Social Club!

March 24, 2022

2022 memberships in The Society a whiskey social club at The Monk’s Cellar are now open!

So what is The Society? In short it’s a way to leverage our access to sample and purchase full barrels of whiskey (commonly referred to as a “barrel pick”) from some of the best distilleries for our members! A process that the average consumer can’t do on their own. We have secured four barrels for this year’s club, from: Westward Whiskey, Sagamore Spirits, Knob Creek, & Eagle Rare. Next barrel pick of 2022 is being released Wednesday June 22nd with subsequent releases about every 2 to 3 months. But it’s not all just about getting your hands on some cool, unique bottles. It’s also about being part of a whiskey loving community. Through regular club events, barrel release parties, educational tastings, or just stopping by Monk’s to enjoy a pour or two from your bottle(s), you’ll get to know some truly great folks. Some of who are just getting into whiskey and other who are seasoned collectors.

Just like each whiskey is unique, so is each person’s interest in whiskey. To accommodate this, we’ve created two different levels of membership: from a prorated full membership that guarantees you get bottles from all three remaining barrel’s for $150 off the individual barrel cost, plus much more; to being able to pick and choose individual barrels as they are released.
