Established in 2013, Hotel Tango Distillery is the first combat-disabled, veteran-owned distillery in the U.S. and Indy’s first since prohibition. Hotel Tango focuses on crafting exceptional spirits that reflect our company’s founder Travis’s time in the military. Spirits that are fit to serve – and made to share. The name Hotel Tango reflects the military roots of our company’s founder, Travis Barnes. Returning home to Indiana after serving three combat tours as a Recon Marine, Travis thought of a special way to incorporate his and his wife's name in their new business. In the military phonetic alphabet, H (for Hilary) translates to Hotel, T (for Travis) translates to Tango. Hotel Tango offers nine premium spirits, including Vodka, Rum, Gin, Bourbon, Rye Whiskey, Reserve Bourbon, Cherry Liqueur, Orangecello, and Lemoncello. As a veteran-owned small business, our mission is to create, produce, and sell high-quality spirits—distilled with the same discipline Travis learned while serving, all while giving back to and supporting local businesses and neighborhoods. We have a commitment to hiring other veterans as we grow and every drink or bottle we are able to sell helps us get closer to hiring that next veteran.
