Welcome to the Tasting Room

Welcome to our tasting room!  With beautiful views of and easy access to Bellefonte’s Talleyrand Park, our distillery tasting room offers guests an inviting space overlooking the Big Spring, the source of the award-winning water that is the clean and refreshing base for all of our fine spirits.  The tasting room has a uniquely beautiful and distinct atmosphere in which to socialize and relax in a space with exposed brick walls, eclectic décor, a 36’ solid walnut bar and a view of the microdistillery production.  On Friday evenings, we feature live entertainment.

As a popular Centre County tourist attraction, craft spirit enthusiasts enjoy comparing and contrasting our offerings when they purchase a tasting served in our signature glass beakers. Visitors also have the option of purchasing one of our craft cocktails from our comprehensive and creative bar menu, as well as sampling interesting local food offerings.  

In addition to tastings and cocktails, bottles of our spirits and logo merchandise can also be purchased in the tasting room.  Tours of the distillery can be arranged in advance by calling ahead or by booking online via our website.

Brown Derby

This is a great way to use whiskey in a summer cocktail. Like the Gold Rush, it blends whiskey and honey – an established pair. But the Brown Derby adds grapefruit instead of lemon and gives the drink additional complexity. It’s really quite refreshing, so you’ll have to come by and taste one for yourself.
