“Drawing inspiration from the country’s most polarizing and corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast, Tom’s Town Distilling Company brings to life the glamorous magnetism of Gatsby-era bon vivants. Rooted in a deco optimism, Kansas City flouted Prohibition under the Pendergast machine. ‘King Tom’s’ irreverence for federal statutes in favor of a bare-knuckled local capitalism allowed his town to emerge as the ‘Paris of the Plains.’ Spirits, money, and jazz flowed like water in this town renowned for fountains. Tom’s Town – The People Are Thirsty.”

What’s Unique?
Today the people are still thirsty in Kansas City and across the U.S. We aim to satisfy that thirst by distilling spirits in the time-honored ways that produce superior products. You can taste our high standards and attention to detail in every sip of the gin, vodka, and bourbon we make on Main Street in downtown Kansas City. The deco optimism and glamorous magnetism of the roaring 1920s come alive through Tom’s Town.
