About the Barrelhouse
Over our first two years at our Strip District Distillery, we have filled our space chock full with more than 500 barrels of made-from-scratch whiskey. In 2013, We set our sights on one of the loveliest sections of the city--the Northside. We found a former produce warehouse, complete with insulated cooling rooms perfect for barrel experiments and a mezzanine begging to be an innovation lab. Before we knew it, we built out the first Barrelhouse in the City in far too long.
We've also purchased two vacant lots alongside the barrelhouse and will be planting those with the plants and botanicals we use in our products to create the country’s first Whiskey Garden over this summer. The Whiskey Garden will be open for imbibing, entertainment and community gatherings beginning May 30 through September. We'll have delicious cocktails and snacks up for offer and you're welcome to bring your own picnic food as well.
We are also offering tours of the barrelhouse beginning on May 31. Tours include a barrel-aged cocktail as well as straight tastings of five spirits including limited edition and experimental batches. We'll also give tour guests a sneak peek of products in our innovation pipeline. On tours, you'll learn how Pittsburgh Whiskey dominated American whiskey production until Prohibition and fueled the steel industry as well as the science behind barrels' impact on spirits.
