UPDATE: 11/6/21 127th Monon Bell Bourbon 90 proof is SOLD OUT!
Monon Bell Straight Bourbon Whiskey was our very first Bourbon offering and one we release every November. They year's batch will be released at 5pm on Friday November 5th, 2021. Once it's sold out, it's gone until the next game!
Aged over four years, the mashbill contains 67.25% Corn, 18.35% Rye, 9.35% Malt Barley, 2.7% Oats, and 2.35% Cherrywood Smoked Malt Barley. We intentionally select different barrels each year to ensure that every batch is as unique as the game itself.
(And we also offer a extremely limited run of Cask Strength bottles each year as well. The game number is how many cask strength bottles we offer and they're only available at the distillery.)
We proudly release this spirit as a tribute to those who do battle in this legendary football game between Wabash College and Depauw University. Steeped in tradition and heroism, this battle is for pride. The oldest rivalry west of the Allegheny mountains. The 300lb Monon Bell, taken from a locomotive that connected the two towns, is the trophy. Undying glory awaits the victors as the Monon Bell's beautiful, clear ringing sings of their victory. In honor of these Indomitable Spirits, we humbly offer this bourbon as tribute. May tales of your valor live on and be shared over a glass of Monon Bell Bourbon!
