River Street Whiskey Co.


In the 1920s, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan was rumored to be a key player for smuggling whiskey into the United States. Legend has it that the infamous Al Capone was at the epicenter of the illegal smuggling. The conceptual names of the liquor were derived from whispered stories of the police chief on the take, local men out “catting” and a brothel operated by an industrious Madame. The names “Tomkat Prowl”, “Painted Lady” and “Crooked Copper” were conceived to remember the past, as crooked, immoral and exciting as it may have been.
