FOUNDED IN 2010.
NO, OUR STORY IS NOT A LONG ONE. BUT ALL TRADITIONS HAVE A BEGINNING.
Union Horse Distilling Co., previously known as Dark Horse Distillery, is a young upstart, mixed with a bit of maverick and a splash of daring. But don’t confuse our fresh faces for a lack of commitment. We’re committed to our craft.
Family owned and family operated, we started Dark Horse Distillery to bring something to Kansas City: bold, pure spirits hand-crafted with conviction, distilled with tradition, delivered with devotion.
And while our story may be short, our spirits and passion will leave a lasting impression. We may be the Dark Horse you didn’t see coming, but we are the one you’re sure to come back to.
HAND-CRAFTED IN KANSAS CITY
We take that mantra literally, and seriously. We hand bottle and label every product that comes out of our over 20,000 square-foot facility.
For us, it’s a sign of respect—for the traditions of the craft-distilling industry, for the grains we buy from our local suppliers, for our family, for our hometown, and ultimately for you, our customer.
MEET CHESTER COPPERPOT
Undeniably, the life of any party, Chester Copperpot is our Vendome copper still that holds court over 10 500-gallon fermenters. Staying true to our craft, Chester (or Mr. Copperpot) is hand-made and is used to distill our line of whiskey products and vodka.
