The Bootlegger Est. 01.03.2014 29,307 days after prohibition ended,The Bootlegger family opened their doors in their first bar in Bristol, since then the family has carried on it's journey heading west, opening it's doors in Cardiff, back to where the minds who conceived the idea grew up. There's still a lot more to come from the Bootlegger family who will spread their wings more so in future times to come.
