Elastico® Tequila Craft Distillery & KC BBQ

ABSTRACT

Craft Mescal made in front of your eyes and authentic Kansas City BBQ

"If you want to see some sin, forget about Paris. Go to Kansas City."~ Dr. George Miller. Under the rebellious leadership of Pendergast, The Prohibition of 1921 “never happened” in Kansas City. Some of the Veal family ran hooch from Louisiana to Kansas City and did business with the likes of Lucky Luciano. More that 80 years later Dano Veal, without knowledge of his family’s prohibition history, became an alcohol spirits importer and exporter who fancied tequila. In 2005 Veal launched his own all 100-proof tequila label, Elastico Tequila distilled in Jalisco, Mexico. Kansas City has a rich history and is also the home of the best barbeque in the world. These old roots sprouted new branches and now the Elastico Tequila Grille is the first Craft Distillery in the world that makes 100-proof 100% blue agave Mescal and creates truly authentic Kansas City barbeque.
