J.W. “Wally” Dant has led the rejuvenation of the Dant family back into the Bourbon business. On Thursday, Nov. 18, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., you can join him at the historic Ripy Mansion in downtown Lawrenceburg to hear his story, taste some Bourbon and take a tour.
Wally began assembling the team to start Log Still Distillery and the Dant Crossing campus over two years ago. He previously owned and operated a wine and spirits distribution business in Tennessee, BonusBev, which recently sold to a larger distributor in Tennessee so he could concentrate all his efforts on the distilling project and campus in his Kentucky home.
As the great-great-great grandson of Bourbon legend Joseph Washington Dant, Wally has continued on with his family’s legacy with Log Still Distillery and Dant Crossing in Gethsemane, Kentucky. Be there as Wally shares his journey into the revival of the Log Still legacy with a guided tasting of Monk’s Road Fifth District Series Cold Spring Distillery Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Monk’s Road Dry Gin, and Monk’s Road Barrel Finished Gin.
Tasting will be paired with light appetizers. As always, the cocktail bar will be open and tours of the mansion will be available. All proceeds in excess of event costs will go directly towards the continued restoration efforts of the Ripy Mansion.
