PHILADELPHIA DISTILLING

Distillery
Founded in 2005
Philadelphia Distilling started out in 2005 and was part of the growing wave of new craft distilleries opening across the United States. In fact, it was the first craft distillery to open in the state of Pennsylvania since Prohibition ended.

In 2006, the company produced its first Spirit, Bluecoat Gin, which remains its flagship bottling to this day. A Vodka followed, then an absinthe, and then a barrel-aged Gin. In 2016, the distillery moved to its current home which houses a shop, tasting room, and cocktail bar, as well as the brand new 2,500-liter hand-hammered copper pot still from Scotland.

Philadelphia Distilling are big believers in traditional craftsmanship, which is why they use a traditional still, married with modern design and techniques. In fact, visitors to the distillery can see the whole process of making Spirits as it happens, with windows from the bars into the distillery floor.

What does Philadelphia Distilling taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Philadelphia Distilling Gin. It's based on all Philadelphia Distilling drinks in our large database and gives you a chance to taste Philadelphia Distilling before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
