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.

    Fantastic bar service from knowledgeable and friendly tenders mixing up incredible cocktails. Food was excellent - wings, peanut butter noodles…crab cake needed more lump meat, but flavor and corn salsa were delicious. Atmosphere is upscale but never stuffy. One of our favorite places!

    We always love it here. This time our bartender was not very attentive and it became noticeable awkward until another employee addressed the situation. The food items are all good, but the selection is too small and therefore difficult to have dinner here bc there just aren’t enough variety of main courses. Wonderful cocktails as always.

    The cocktails are just as good as you’d expect. Varied, seasonal, and inventive. More surprising is just how good the food is. They could have totally phoned it in with a burger and typical bar fare but the plates are elegant, elevated, clever, and just plain damn good.

    We had a great pre-dinner drink at this stunning space. My cocktail was delicious and the service was attentive. The Gougere appetizer was also great - it included honey and goat cheese. Keep in mind, at least when I visited, there is no wine or beer on the menu....but it didn't deter me from enjoying - A FOOLHARDY UNDERTAKING- Bluecoat American Dry Gin, House French Oak Aged Orange Liqueur, Grapefruit, Rosemary, Cranberry, Lime, Jack's Lavender Vanilla Bitters....it was fabulous! Can't wait to return!

    All the food here is really good. Serving sizes for some items (i.e. burger and wings) leave a little to be desired but flavors are on point. Our waiter was a bit aloof but other than that, would definitely come back for dinner and drinks.
