With an emphasis on local, Big Spring Spirits was founded with the vision of being a community-centric craft distillery in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. Leveraging Bellefonte's Big Spring award-winning water, we've produced a line of products that have found it's way into taverns, restaurants, and homes across Pennsylvania.
NEW LOCATION COMING IN 2024
THE DISTILLERY AT SOUTH SHORE

SPIRIT OF THE MONTH
September's Spirit of the Month is Golden Gin! This bottle is our Seven Governors' Gin rested on oak, giving it an aged flavor and appearance. The juniper aroma has softened and there are now notes of anise and clove in the nose (neither is in the unaged gin). There is still plenty of juniper in the taste, but is now more luscious and rounded with hints of sandalwood and tangerine.
COCKTAIL OF THE MONTH
MILLIONS OF PEACHES
Introducing "Millions of Peaches" - a fiery cocktail merging Golden Gin, hot honey, thyme, peach juice, and lemon. Indulge in the perfectly balanced blend of sweetness, heat, and herbal notes, as the aged gin and peach juice harmonize with the kick of hot honey and the refreshing touch of lemon.
