A Whiskey Social Club

A Whiskey Social Club

April 9, 2021

UPDATE: founding Angel’s Share memberships are now available in our Online Store.

More than a year and a half in the making, Monk’s is proud to announce 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗲𝘁𝘆: 𝗔 𝗪𝗵𝗶𝘀𝗸𝗲𝘆 𝗦𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗹𝘂𝗯.

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 already from Peerless, Elijah Craig, Maker’s Mark & WhistlePig. The first will arrive at the end of May and then approximately every two months a new one will arrive. We’ll be picking one more distillery/barrel for a total of five barrels in 2021.

Just like each whiskey is unique, so is each person’s interest in whiskey. To accommodate this, we’ve created different levels of membership: from a full membership that guarantees you get all five barrel’s for the price of four, plus much more, to being able to pick and choose barrels as they are released (availability will vary depending on each barrel’s yield and the number of full Angel’s Share memberships).

– 5 bottles, 1 from each barrel, that you can keep behind the bar at Monk’s (no extra charge to have drinks made from your bottle & you can take your bottle home at any time).
