Award-winning Whiskey, Proudly Made in Pennsylvania

Our American Whiskey is a bourbon-style blended whiskey made using locally-sourced corn, wheat, and rye and is aged 7 years in charred new American oak barrels.  


This year’s American Whiskey has been awarded the prestigious Double Gold medal, as well as a rating of 96 by the competition judges. The Double Gold medal signifies the highest level of recognition at the NYISC, reserved for spirits that receive gold ratings unanimously from all judges. Out of 1,400 entries, only 39 Whiskeys were awarded the ranking of Double Gold. 


The NYISC is one of the most influential and distinguished spirits competitions in the world, bringing together judges and industry experts to evaluate and recognize the finest spirits from across the globe. With a rigorous blind-tasting process, the competition showcases outstanding products and provides a platform for distilleries to gain recognition for their exceptional craftsmanship.

With an emphasis on local, Big Spring Spirits founder Kevin Lloyd envisioned opening a community-centric craft distillery in the heart of Central Pennsylvania. When the opportunity arose to set down roots in Bellefonte’s beautiful Match Factory in 2014, it was an easy decision.


​Since then, Big Spring Spirits is proud to be able to partner with this community, sourcing from our local farmers and artisans, whenever possible. Whether it’s our locally-sourced whiskeys or our Seven Governor’s Gin, we draw inspiration from our community and commit to being the best neighbors we can be. Pennsylvania proud - every day.

What makes a quality spirit? It’s all about the water. Bellefonte’s Big Spring is the recipient of various “Best Tasting Water” awards in Pennsylvania. It’s so good, it rivals the limestone spring waters of Kentucky. It’s so good that multinational companies source their bottled water from the Big Spring. 

If you’ve ever had a sip of our exceptionally smooth spirits, you understand the contribution that award-winning water makes to superior products.
