Pennsylvania is not only known for producing award-winning brews and wines, but also expertly-crafted distilled spirits, many of which are made with the agriculture grown right here in the Keystone State. Explore one of these craft distilleries while enjoying scenic views of the Pennsylvania landscapes of which they’re made.
1 Hidden Still Spirits
Hidden Sill Spirits continues the long history of distilling spirits which can be dated back to 1753. The name is derived from how the process of distilling spirits had been conducted many times throughout history. The facility, not far from West Chocolate Avenue, is in an old plant previously used to service The Hershey Co. It produces handcrafted small patches of bourbon, whiskey, vodka, gin and rum.
