Tom’s Town plans to release one new spirit quarterly, starting now and continuing through 2018 and beyond.
The first release in the series is an antique barrel-aged gin, scheduled for early March. Additional products include alternative styles of gins, whiskeys, liqueurs and collaborations with some of the region’s notable craft breweries to create.
The Pendergast Machine series will be bottled in 375ml bottles with branding reflecting the Pendergast era and the no-nonsense attitude of the political machine.
2017 releases include the following:
2018 releases will include four spirits in the Brewer’s Series produced in partnership with Crane Brewing in Raytown, Double Shift Brewing in Kansas City, 4 Hands Brewing in St. Louis, and Cinder Block Brewery in North Kansas City.
