- S.D. Strong Distilling is heating up in Parkville.
While other suburban fathers in Parkville tend to their lawns on the weekends, Steve Strong is heading 65 feet below ground. The former rocker, most recently of Steve Strong and the Jackknife Truckers, and father of three has been toiling in the caves below Park University for the past two years. Strong, 44, is the pitchman and distiller for S.D. Strong Distilling, the microdistillery that recently began selling its first spirit: vodka.
“Microdistilleries look like the beginning stages of the microbrewery thing about 20 years ago,” Strong says. “And I thought it would be cool to be in on something like this.”
