501 W Spruce St , Dodge City, KS 67801

In the ‘Wicked Little City’ of Dodge City, Kan., a team of farmers started Boot Hill Distillery to celebrate the history of the ‘Cowboy Capital of the World.’ Seed to sip, they’re putting their city in a bottle one craft spirit at a time.
Boot Hill Distillery opened its doors in 2014 on the ground of Dodge City’s old Municipal Building. Long before becoming their distillery, the storied land was host to gunslingers and outlaws, all looking for a piece of the Wild West. Boot Hill Distillery is built on the history of Dodge City, and you can taste it in their craft spirits.
Owned by farmers Roger and Hayes Kelman and Chris Holovach, every grain used to produce their craft spirits is a product of their labor. They grow it, harvest it, mill it, mash it, ferment it, distill it and bottle it. Each of Boot Hill Distillery’s thoughtfully crafted spirits, from their gin and vodka to their whiskey and bitters, is award-winning. Come and taste Dodge City’s legacy.
