MB Roland Distillery is a completely “grain to glass” craft distillery located in Pembroke, Christian Co. KY. We’re actually outside of town and affectionately refer to our exact location as “downtown St. Elmo.” We use local white corn to hand make each of our products ranging from our very unique “distillation & barrel proof” Kentucky Bourbon. The distillery was founded by Paul & Merry Beth (“MB”) Tomaszewski in 2009 as Kentucky’s first completely “grain to glass” craft distillery. Paul is a native of south eastern Louisiana and arrived to the area via nearby Ft Campbell, while MB is a local native. An Amish dairy farm came up for sale and proved Paul & Merry Beth (“MB”) – About MBR Distillery to be a wonderful foundation for a Kentucky craft distillery. One of the major benefits of the location is our proximity to our local grain supplier, Christian County Grain, located in nearby Pembroke.
Dark amber in colour. The bouquet shows citrus, strawberries, butterscotch, deep oak wood and toasted corn. Very corn-forward in the best possible way with all the aforementioned notes of the bouquet coming through as well. Brown sugar caramel, banana, a hint of spice and a faint malt towards the end. A long, warm finish with loads of vanilla and caramel.
