About
Drawing inspiration from the country's most corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast, Tom's Town Distilling Co. is downtown Kansas City's first legal distillery since Prohibition. Enjoy a craft cocktail in our gorgeous art deco tasting room or take our 1 hour tour for an in-depth look at the distillation process and a brief overview of Kansas City during Boss Tom's rule. Cheers!

One of the best tours in KC
This is one of the most interesting and fun tours you can take in Kansas City. The history they teach you is absolutely fascinating and Dick is an excellent tour guide to present it to you. He's extremely knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. When you come make sure to leave plenty of time to hang out in the bar afterward! Joy is one of the best bartenders in town. Not only are her drinks fantastic she'll give you great suggestions on where to eat and drink next. We took the 2:30pm tour and the bar was packed by the time it was over. I highly recommend this tasting! The spirits they make here are SO UNIQUE and tasty. This is a MUST DO!

Labor Day Weekend at Tom’s Town Distillery
Our tour guide gave us an entertaining history lesson of Prohibition in KC and how Tom and Harry Truman came to be business partners for a while. Dick was very knowledgeable of that part of history.

Date night

We learned lots of history that we did not know about, and got a science lesson on how they make their spirits! The tasting was great and we even got a chance to purchase at the end. Great for date night, we had a cocktail and some food after the tour.

Fun and informative
The Tom, Dick and Harry show was phenomenal. Tom Pendergast, Dick the guide, and Harry Truman. After the tour, you felt like you knew these gentleman and their lifestyles. The tastings were exceptional with amazing aromas and flavors. Definitely worth the trip.

Lots of Fun and Great Cocktails
Jul 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and tasting. The staff was super friendly and fun and it made the entire Tom's Town cocktails and experience top knotch.

Everyone agreed that the cocktails they had were fantastic, whether a classic cocktail, personal favorite or one of the house specialties.

Oh yeah, the appetizers we had were great too.

The Toms town tour is incredible! Not only is the alcohol wonderful but the story of Tom Pendergast and how the distillery came to be is so fun. Our tour guide Tony could not have been more engaging, knowledgeable, and fun. Highly recommend.

Great tastes and great history
Dick did a very good job explaining, not only the history, but also the mechanics and engineering involved within the distillery. Our group equally enjoyed the history as well as the tasting. The gins, bourbons and vodka were extremely tasty.

Fascinating history of KC and prohibition! Bourbon’s great, too!
This was such a great KC experience. I expected to learn about the distilling process, which I did. But, learning some of the KC history related to Tom’s Town was fascinating. My husband and I both loved it. Dick was a great tour guide! If you like bourbon, vodka or gin and want to learn more about KC and prohibition, this is the tour for you!
