Hotel Tango Distillery is the nation’s first combat-disabled, veteran-owned distillery. The distillery was founded by Travis Barnes, a three-time combat Recon Marine war veteran, and his wife, Hilary. Using the NATO phonetic alphabet, “Hotel” and “Tango” is derived from the first names of founders Hilary and Travis. Hotel Tango Distillery’s flagship location is in Indianapolis, Indiana (right off I-65) with additional tasting rooms in Fort Wayne and Zionsville.

The company was born not only out of our founders’ passion for distilling, but also their desire to create a space (and a brand) that’s welcoming to all comers who want to have a good time while enjoying high-quality spirits. And you can see this same attitude in our dedication to creating an inclusive environment for workers, stakeholders, partners, and consumers. We are committed to delivering on our promise: Guaranteed to elevate morale.
