Tyler Staples Head Bartender

From Des Moines, Iowa, our Head Bartender, Tyler Staples, has called Minneapolis home since 2008. Moving to the Twin Cities to pursue a degree in music and Russian literature at the University of Minnesota, after college he found himself trading classical music for classic cocktails.

While working at local ramen authority, Zen Box Izakaya, he cultivated a passion for sake and inventive cocktails. Most recently he was part of the bar team at award-winning restaurant Spoon and Stable. He joins us at O’Shaughnessy Distilling Co. with a decade of experience and a dedication to hospitality.
