If you enjoy whiskey or gin you should take this tour. The tour shows you the process of how whiskey is made and also discusses the history of whiskey making in the region dating back to the Whiskey Rebellion. The tour guide made it very entertaining. The different types of whiskey made here taste great. Besides the samples that come with the tour, you can purchase more drinks or full bottles after the tour. Get the Pennsylvania Sazerac!

My wife and I came to town to celebrate out anniversary and did kind of a walking food tour. We stayed downtown and the walk was easy, about a mile. Our first stop was Wigle.

We aren’t big drinkers but we like a taste or two and the experience. A couple of staff greeted us and made us feel very welcome. There are many tasting options, I wound up tasting a flight of 5 or 6 and learned how different the whiskeys are. Love the little tastes and the smartest thing I did was walk away after small tastes rather than finishing each pour

We liked it so much that we went back the next day and bought a selection of whiskeys and bitters.

Great experience! We walked in to check out the whiskey tastings, and there was no wait, so that was a plus. They had a nice selection to choose from based on tastes, and how adventurous you felt. We were able to substitute, and were given recommendations based on our own whiskey preferences. Staff were very accommodating and knowledgeable about their products. Definitely was a great way to spend the afternoon.

It was an incredible atmosphere with delicious food from the Black Sheep Food truck and a jazz band. The absolute highlight of our evening was the tasting room and getting to try the different spirits. The staff was especially knowledgeable about each spirit, it's ingredients, history, and expected taste.The barrel rested ginever was definitely our favorite! Needless to say we will be visiting again!

Yes, Gin! We had several hours to kill before our flight, so we stopped in for some cocktails o' the patio. There are plenty of games to play while you navigate around the several EXCELLENT spirit options. We were surprised to see Gin on the list....so G&T it was. We were at a loss to explain why it was SO GOOD! Likewise for everyone else we have shared our purchases with at home. We already ordered more. Go for the fun and bring some home.
