What You Can Expect When You Tour Wigle Whiskey Distillery
Wigle Whiskey has been around since 2012. They’re the most awarded craft distillery in the U.S., with 2018 ASCA “best in class” gin and gold medal bourbon awards. Wigle was even a James Beard finalist!
The reason behind the success of such a new distillery is the premium quality of the products. Wigle’s whiskeys, landlocked rums, honey spirits, and organic bitters are all milled, fermented, distilled, aged, and bottled in Pittsburgh. You can even buy most of their products on the online store! Forget the hassle of traveling with a heavy bottle and have it sent directly to your home or to the person you want to gift it to.
Tours and Visits
Wigle Whiskey has three locations in Pittsburgh. The main distillery and tasting room is on Small Street, with another tasting room and shop at William Penn Place. The barrelhouse and whiskey garden is on Spring Garden Ave.
Tours are available on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Start your visit with a cocktail before learning about the distillation process and the history of the Whiskey Rebellion. Then, sit down to taste the spirits! The tour is about an hour long and is limited to a few people, so we highly recommend making reservations in advance.
