American
Philadelphia Distilling, the first craft distillery in Pennsylvania since prohibition, was founded in 2005 to create compelling spirits geared for the American palette.
At Philadelphia Distilling, our distilling team combines craftsmanship, science and skill to create a unique portfolio of premium spirits that rely on the agricultural integrity of authentically sourced grains and botanicals and the finest heritage equipment.

Hand-hammered copper pot stills from the fifth-generation Forsyth family and wooden fermentation vessels from Hall-Woodford, an iconic Philadelphia-based family business, are key points of difference for us—both in their construction value as well as the integrity of the spirits they help us to produce. We continue our batch-by-batch process, creating spirits that celebrate big, bold flavor.

Philadelphia distilling is a must visit everytime we go to the city. Food is great but the drinks and bar staff are out of this world incredible!! This time we had Gretchen as our bartender and she was incredibly in tune with her descriptions and recommendations.

Don’t miss Philadelphia Distilling. Everything about it was incredible. The bluecoat gin tour and tasting was fascinating and I don’t even drink gin! Food out on the patio was amazing As was the service. Most fun my friends and I have had in a long time. Highly recommend

Absolutely incredible. Drinks were amazing, the venue is super cool - industrial and classy - and Nico, our waiter, was the man. He knew everything about the building and gave us an amazing time. Couldn’t recommend it more.

I love this place - definitely worth chatting up the servers so they can help recommend cocktails. They'll also go off their list if you ask. Plus, their drinks are more on the sour and dry side - not very sweet, so it's perfect. Ambiance is great, location is a little bit of a hassle, but it's worth it.

Really small limited menu. I got the burger and it was very overcooked and had this tomato puree which I didn't care for. Service was slow and hard to get the servers attention.

World class Gin in our hood! If you head in not a Gin lover, no worries... the food and other drinks are unreal. I have a feeling you will likely leave loving Blue Coat though. The space is hip and cozy. The store has everything your bar needs and more.

I know its about the Distillery, but maybe should consider more bar-food friendly bites...Bartenders and servers were excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and fun! Bartender Nico's cocktails were delicious and creative, so good! Will definitely come back for more!
