Soon to join the vodka and gin produced at Restless Spirits Distilling in North Kansas City, is a blended whiskey that’s combined with Irish whiskey (with an ‘e’ I hope, for that’s how we spell whiskey in Ireland).
Owner Mike Shannon says, “The people who came here from Ireland contributed enormously to this country. Their craftsmanship and creativity built Kansas City, and we just want to honor that.”
From their website:
From The Quiet Land Of Erin To The Heartland Of America, Our Forefathers Brought Wandering Hearts, Hardworking Souls And A Mighty Thirst For All That Life Has To Offer. Many Years Later, The Shannon Family Is Distilling That Unique Irish-American Spirit Into Finely Crafted Products Made To Please The Palate And Ease The Soul.
Their whiskey will be released in May 2016 as Stone Breaker Irish and American Blended Whiskey. Later various expressions of their whiskey will be available, and unaged poitín and Irish cream liqueur will be offered seasonally.
