Welcome to Pittsburgh! What do you want to do first? Not sure yet? Well what about plans for tomorrow? …Well you still have time to decide… Where are you staying? You haven't booked a hotel yet?!?!
Love whiskey? Walking? Pittsburgh? Then this sounds like the tour for you!
From the mill to the still, whiskey has been a cornerstone in Pittsburgh's history. Come downtown for our whiskey history tour where you will discover how whiskey has fueled political, labor and social movements throughout the region. We start the tour with a sample of the oldest and longest continuously produced whiskey in America. As we walk the streets of Downtown, you'll learn about the violent Whiskey Rebellion in Pittsburgh, hidden former (as well as existing!) speakeasies around the city, and how Prohibition affected the region. Besides that you will find out a lot about the revival of craft spirits, the history of a local and family-owned distillery and the first privately run liquor store in PA since before Prohibition. You will get 4 additional and generously poured samples of whiskey at the end as well as drink coupons that can be redeemed at the Wigle distillery and 1700 Penn Ave. Cheers!
