Brandywine Branch Distillers, Founded by Don Avellino and Scott Avellino, is a new small batch micro-distillery located in Pennsylvania’s bucolic Chester County. A grain-to-bottle enterprise, Brandywine Branch Distillers inhabits a lovingly restored 130-year-old barn, located on an eight-acre property and exclusively produces everything on site utilizing handcrafted methods. Its debut and principal offering, The Revivalist Gins™, is a portfolio of four unique and small-batch expressions: Equinox, Summertide, Harvest, and Solstice. Walsh, Managing Director of Production and Master Blender at Brandywine Branch Distillers, wanted to create a year-round portfolio of gins that reflected different taste profiles and echoed the natural progression of the seasons, their scents, colors and flavors, in order to create something for every palate.

Very nice, good gin flight sampler (purchased a bottle as well) , food was great, a small place but nice, the cheese plate is a bit pricey and should be ~$5 less. We will go again.

I almost don't want to write a review as it will draw more people to the absolute GEM!! and I want to keep it to myself... this is a converted 18th century barn, impeccable décor, fantastic Food... and the Cocktails!!... you have to try their onsite made Gin & Bourbon!... Do yourself a favor and find this place!

Love the Brandywine Branch Bistro! Scenic spot, unique menu, cozy interior.
It is known for its gin drinks, great variety of cocktails. Service is good , friendly, helpful and they remember if you are a return guest. Drawbacks are the abbreviated hours and small tables...both excusable for the dining experience.

Four of us, all first time diners at The Brandywine Bistro, enjoyed a delicious dinner on Friday night. We all agreed that the food was creative and tasty, the ambiance was lovely and rustic, and the staff could not have been nicer. Thrilled to have a great restaurant out here!

The service was outstanding, exceptional, the best. The hostess was energetic, gave us an explanation of the distilling process-wonderful. Our server was superb-attentive, engaging-perfect! The cheese offering as appetizer was beautifully presented and delicious. The warm persimmon hazelnut salad was excellent. Atmosphere was charming. My entree- the stuffed acorn squash was served lukewarm- not a good thing. Presentation was good but would not order again. The other entree ordered was the pork chop- again, presentation good, but meat was tough and no appropriate style cutting tool was offered. Bland taste.
Lovely atmosphere, drinks were above average, appetizer/salad were superb. Entrees, in my opinion, were quite lacking.
Go for the drinks and appetizers. You will enjoy these.

we sat in the distillery room which was fun and private but cold - wear a sweater if you opt for that. the soup was like warm but tasty The gnocchi was small and not enjoyable - too much vinegar flavor for me. it took 90 minutes to get our main dishes so it was a long and disappointing meal. But the owner heard about our evening and reached out to us. Really impressed with his response and planning to try again sometime.

The drinks are excellent as is the food. This is my new favorite place. Very small inside so reservations are necessary. They don't have a lot of seating. The bar is awesome.

Nice place, but prices are way out of line. We could have dined at far nicer establishments for the money.
