Our Story

Official Whiskey Island Clothing Logo

Founded in 2015, Whiskey Island Clothing became the first woman owned t-shirt brand in the Cleveland Area. Named after Whiskey Island, the peninsula at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River at Lake Erie, this ‘Cleveland Born’ brand is creative and calculated with superior quality and innovative graphics. With an unapologetic attitude, Whiskey Island Clothing not only honors The City of Cleveland, the North Coast, and the great State of Ohio, but it also promotes self-assurance and its love for the underdog.

“Never water yourself down just because someone can’t handle you at 100 proof.”

Our inspiration comes from our appreciation for art, sports and heritage. Our creativity is fueled by the love and loyalty we have for the underdog. We believe in learning from mistakes and fighting for what we love.


Whiskey Island Clothing became available in local stores as of 2017. In 2017, WIC was also a featured vendor at Cleveland’s Made Local Marketplace, the Vermilion Beach Market, and Machine Gun Kelly’s annual music festival, EST FEST.
