KC NFL Team Partners with Local Distillery
Kansas City loves their football and their community – so we couldn’t be happier to announce that the Kansas City Chiefs NFL team has partnered with local distilling company Tom’s Town as the Official Gin of the Chiefs.
The Chiefs-branded gin is Tom’s Town’s 90 proof Botanical Gin, which has already won multiple national awards – including a gold medal at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America conference.
As reported in the Kansas City Business Journal, “Kansas City-based Tom’s Town Distilling Co. signed a three-year partnership agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs that makes Tom’s Town Botanical Gin the team’s official gin.”
Kim Hobbs, Chiefs vice president of corporate partnerships and premium sales, weighed in on the KCBJ article as well, commenting: “We want to reflect everything that’s great about Kansas City and that includes the fantastic local brands our community is so passionate about…Tom’s Town represents the true spirit of Kansas City.”
According to Tom’s Town co-founder David Epstein: “We are a small brand, but we play big and the Chiefs are one of the largest brands in the NFL… It is just so great and refreshing to see them really working with local companies. The entire NFL recognized that people were really hurting in 2020 and they really made an effort to work with local companies. We’re grateful for that.”
As the Missouri representative for all of Tom’s Town spirits, Vintegrity is thrilled for Tom’s Town and the Chiefs relationship. According to Vintegrity proprietor JP Gilmore, “It’s exciting to have two iconic and highly popular KC brands come together for this partnership – we think the Chiefs Kingdom will love it!”
Echoing that sentiment, Tom’s Town has created the “Thirsty Kingdom,” a drink recipe made with Tom’s Town Botanical Gin, cranberry juice, lime juice, and a splash of ginger ale.
