RAISE A TOAST TO THE NEW
GOLDEN AGE OF KANSAS CITY SPIRITS

SPIRITED ROOTS
Long before the era of high-tech
streetcars and smart-city allure,
Kansas City was on the cusp of a
different renaissance, one fueled by
jazz, baseball and, remarkably, liquor.
Prohibition officially prevented the
sale of alcohol throughout the country,
but the crafty community of 1920s KC-
led by political boss Tom Pendergast-
collectively looked the other direction
during its heyday. The good times
flowed as freely as the Pendergastproduced spirits. While it certainly
left its mark on Kansas City, the party
finally ended when the Pendergast
machine was shut down in 1939.

GLASS-RAISING REVIVAL
ZACH BAUMAN

The craft distilling scene is booming once
again-this time fully legal, thankfully-
with a few familiar faces that have
returned to their pre-Prohibition glory,
plus plenty of newcomers, too.
