Log Still Distillery Tours Start Today

Just two years ago Wally Dant of the historical Dant family distilling legacy broke ground for the Log Still Distillery in Dant Crossing, Gethsemane, Kentucky. Today there is a fully-functioning distillery, amphitheater, tasting room, and more that guests can visit – even a train!

The distillery building evokes images of a midcentury airplane hangar elevated with wood paneling on the ceiling and walls. The distilling equipment is shiny and modern including stainless steel fermenters and cookers. There is currently only one rickhouse onsite but there is obvious construction all around the property.

The distillery is home to the Monk’s Road brands of Bourbon and Gin, though distillation has only been taking place on the property since the summer of 2022.

On tours, guests will have the opportunity to learn about the Dant family’s legacy in the distilling business (they are historically noteworthy on their own but are best known for marrying into the Beam family) and tour the facility before enjoying a tasting.

The facility is also home to an amphitheater called The Amp with shows on a regular basis that include big names in rock and country. Billy Ray Cyrus is on the agenda for September. Live music is scheduled for every Friday thru the end of October.

Reservations for tours are strongly recommended – you don’t want to drive all that way and be turned away – but not required. Book a tour here for groups of 1-12 people, $15 each.
