West Bottoms Whiskey Co.
Our Old Fashioned is claimed to be the best in Kansas City since we opened in Jan. 2021, but as of Nov., The Pitch’s Best of KC lots makes it official. Made with our signature Kansas City Whiskey, which is heavy on rye, finished with dry sherry, and just a small amount of maple syrup, this Old Fashioned has a complexity that you wouldn’t expect—but will definitely make you want another. Garnished with a dehydrated mandarin and a whiskey-infused marasca cherry, the true coup de grâs is a glass smoked with bitters on an actual whiskey stave.
