Philadelphia Distilling

Craft distillery makes smooth spirits with local ingredients

With the help of two business partners, Master Distiller Rob Cassell turned his passion for spirits into the first thriving craft distillery in Pennsylvania since Prohibition.

First, in 2006, the company introduced the world to Bluecoat Gin, an award-winning floral spirit made from certified-organic botanicals and distinguished by its smooth finish. Its signature blue-glass bottle has become a fixture on the bar scene and is widely used by savvy bartenders.

The 8,000 square-foot, Northeast Philadelphia-based distillery has since followed up that early success with Penn 1681 Rye Vodka, a spirit made with organic local rye, and Vieux Carre Absinthe Supérieure, the first absinthe to be legally distilled, bottled and sold in the East Coast of the United States in 100 years. An emphasis on local ingredients has resulted in high-quality, affordable products which are available online, at PA state stores and at discerning liquor stores around the country.
