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.
MB Roland Kentucky Malt Whiskey is a sweet and delicate whiskey, made in the style of a Pre-Prohibition era spirit – uncut, unfiltered and bottled at distillation and barrel proof. Dark amber in colour. The bouquet shows nutty, cocoa powder, hints of dried grain underneath. The palate is reminiscent of dark chocolate along with nutty and grassy notes. Warm, sweet with lingering “candy bar” notes of nuts and cocoa on the finish.
