Mob Museum Launches Daily Tours in the Underground Distillery

Mob Museum Las Vegas The Underground Distillery

The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is now offering daily tours in The Underground Distillery at 5 p.m. 

During the 30-minute tour, which involves sampling a variety of spirits, participants receive an in-depth explanation of the distillery equipment and distillation process, they will learn about Prohibition and its impact on distilled spirits, and will learn about Prohibition-era bootlegging and rum running.

Guests have the chance to taste in-house distilled moonshine, vodka and the Jamaica ginger infusion. The Distillery Tours are designed to encourage visitors to develop an appreciation for the flavor of moonshine, which The Mob Museum says “is as authentic as it can safely get.” It is made in-house with 100 percent corn and bottled at 50 percent ABV.

Moonshine’s relationship to the Mob? Prohibition shut down thousands of breweries and distilleries across America, but it could not eliminate the public’s desire for alcohol. It forced the brewing and distilling of booze into the shadows, which contributed significantly to the rise and proliferation of the Mob in America. 

Numerous artifacts found in the Speakeasy and Distillery add depth and context to the Prohibition experience. Items to be on display include a beaded chiffon dress, circa 1926, which is an example of the new and bolder fashions that became popular during the Prohibition era due to the rise of flapper culture, as well as a five-gallon whiskey still, one of the smaller home stills used to make alcohol during Prohibition.

Visitors to The Underground at The Mob Museum can also visit its Speakeasy, which serves house-distilled moonshine, house-brewed craft beer, distilled vodka, Prohibition era-inspired cocktails, draft beer, wines by the glass and non-alcoholic drinks. 

Visitors of the Museum may add-on a Distillery Tour to their admission at the box office.  

Admission to the speakeasy is included with general Museum admission and free any time for patrons using the daily passwords found on Instagram stories @MobMuseum Underground.
