Kansas City’s first legal distillery to open since Prohibition is Tom’s Town Distilling Co., located at 17th and Main in the Crossroads Art District.   Drawing on their own personal connections to the notorious Tom Pendergast, co-owners Steve Revare and David Epstein have drawn inspiration from the city’s most polarizing and corrupt political boss to create signature spirits that evoke the era when the city was wide open and to have the superior quality made in the time-honored ways.

Tom Pendergast had roots in the liquor business as a saloon keeper and as the founder of a wholesale liquor company.  In addition to owning a concrete company, he exuded considerable influence as the political boss of the city.  Under Pendergast’s influence, Kansas City flouted Prohibition.  Tom’s irreverence for federal statues in favor of bare-knuckled local business dealings allowed his town to emerge as the “Paris of the Plains.”  Money, jazz and spirits flowed like water, right out in the open.
