Mean Mule Distilling Co. is the newest distillery and tasting room in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.

By day, chief executive officer and head distiller Jeff Evans, alongside his wife and chief operations officer, Meg, and chief marketing officer and brand developer Patrick Little, sell bottles of American Agave Spirit in Mean Mule Silver and Mean Mule Gold.

At night, the bar serves cocktails made with the spirits, headed up by bar manager Justin Klaas. Try the Mean Mule Marg, his spin on a classic Margarita; the Agroni, a Negroni made with the agave spirit; and The Supernova, a citrus- and rhubarb-forward cocktail. The tasting room also offers a small selection of wine and local beer, and will soon add other Kansas City-made spirits.
