From The Ashes Rises A Winning Spirit
Gone are the days of one-note gin offerings. Our award-winning Roots of Ruin Gin is crafted with eight complex botanicals. The finished product? Each of the ingredients has the chance to shine–especially the three that are most unique to us: chamomile, ginger, and rosemary giving our gin a bright and unique flavor profile.

 106 Proof (ABV 53%)

The Old Taylor Distillery has a revered place in Kentucky distilling history. In 1887, when Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. built the distillery, he intended it to both produce high-quality spirits and stand out from the crowd with its distinctive architectural charm to become the birthplace of bourbon tourism. Inspired by European architecture, the site features a Castle, a classical Springhouse, and Sunken Garden. In 1920, however, Prohibition forced the closing of the distillery and over the course of the next century, the property changed owners and occupants several times, until it fell into ruin. 


In 2014, Will Arvin (the modern founder of Castle & Key) began restoring this historic bourbon icon with a focus on changing the narrative around Kentucky spirits. He created a team of likeminded people from inside and outside the industry to resurrect the castle by creating Castle & Key Distillery, which opened its doors in 2018. Taking up Colonel Taylor’s dedication to his home state, Castle & Key strives to use local ingredients when possible. Castle & Key makes everything that they sell from carefully selected grains and always chooses to do things in a thoughtful way – even when it’s not the easy way.
