Award Winning Sprits!

Pennsylvania Distilling Company… WOW!!!

Good things come to those who wait.
Making new friends.

It’s hard to believe that this distillery is less than 6 months old. In the tradition of our forefathers they are craft distilling the old fashioned way. Using all natural ingredients and starting from scratch. As they promise, they are “grain-to-glass” and are doing it right every step of the process.

“Anything that saved the human race from extinction is fine by me.” said Benjamin, as he shares his love for spirits. He greets us with a warm and friendly hello. He has a passion for taking what is distilled behind the glass wall and showcases the complex flavors in the cocktails that he has created.

We found that all of their spirits can be enjoyed neat. But, don’t hesitate to experience the well thought out cocktail menu which compliments their creations. First we sampled the First City Vodka which has a mellow corn sweet beginning and a spicy rye finish. Next we moved on to the Founders Artisan Dry Gin that had flavor notes of lemon, lavender and black pepper. The Old City White Whiskey pays homage to folks living on Elfreth’s Alley in Philadelphia. Sweet corn enters the palate and pepper and spice finishes the journey. Our last stop on our Fermented Adventure was the Frontier Explorer’s White Rum. Benjamin lifted the presentation by adding a garnish to each of the samples. This provided a fabulous new dimension. They are hard at work crafting new spirits to add to their already amazing line up.

First Rate Presentation

You most certainly need to put Pennsylvania Distilling Co. on your must list to visit soon. We look forward to getting back really soon. Cheers!

Visit #2 To Dad’s Hat

All they do is continue making exceptional Rye Whiskey. Herman (co-owner and distiller) gave the tour which was informative and educational. We sampled a number of their offerings and the 95 Proof Straight Rye continues to be one of our favorites along with the Classic. None of their offerings disappoint. We couldn’t pass up on a bottle of their Rock n Rye. It’s Christmas in a bottle. Complex flavors that linger on the palate. This is a limited release and it’s our guess that they will be increasing production for next year. Aways looking forward to see what comes off of the still in Bristol, PA. This needs to be a must visit on your own Fermented Adventure. www.dadshatrye.com
