Cask 171 is owned by Kevin Roche. He started his career in the service industry at an early age. Right out of college, Kevin started bartending at Steak and Brew in Levittown, Long Island. Wanting to learn more about the food side of the service industry, Kevin joined Robert Day-Dean's Catering team, one of the most prestigious caterers in New York. From the Rockefellers to the Met's owners to US Senators, Kevin learned the high end of the food catering industry during his time with Robert Day-Dean. Kevin's vast experience, now with food and beverages, landed him his next position as beverage director of The Opera Restaurant in Englewood Cliffs. As a beverage expert and down to earth, unpretentious person, Kevin's next step in his career was when he began to hit his stride, his way. Kevin opened Oueen Anne's Liquor Store in Teaneck, NJ.

Since opening Queen Anne's, Kevin has built one of the largest selections of single malt scotch, small batch bourbons, irish whiskey, rye whiskey and tequila in state of NJ. Kevin, in his down to earth way, has now brought his experience with high end service and products to Cask 171.
