Tonight: Try Pennsylvania’s First Bourbon


whiskeyv3Wigle Whiskey is bringing bourbon back to Philly, and they’re doing it tonight.

The company, aiming to champion the customs of the rebellious, Prohibition-Era distillers, makes their whiskey the traditional way with copper pots and local ingredients in Pittsburgh–the historic epicenter of American whiskey-making. At the height of whiskey production in the 18th and 19th centuries, there were over 4,000 distilleries in Western Pennsylvania alone. Today there are… Well, let’s just say that there are a lot fewer. But Wigle is one of them, and tonight they’re going to do us a favor.

Tonight from 5-7 pm, Wigle Whiskey is coming to Philly to celebrate the release of the first Pennsylvania bourbon in decades. Join them at Petruce et al for happy hour snacks, distillery goodies, and, of course, tastings of the local bourbon.
