The 129th Edition is SOLD OUT!
The 130th Edition will be released the first Friday of November, 2024.
NO SHIPPING. PICK UP ONLY.
Monon Bell Straight Bourbon Whiskey was our very first Bourbon offering and one we release the first Friday of every November. Once it's sold out, it's gone until the next game!
The 129th version (2023) was aged over four years, the mashbill contains 74% Corn, 14% Rye, 5% Malt Barley, 6% Wheat and 1% Oats. 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!
