Seven years ago Whiskey made a trumpeting return to Pittsburgh in the form of Wigle Whiskey. Wigle has grown into three locations and the cider house spin-off: Threadbare. Wigle has grown to reach wine and spirit stores and can be found in most restaurants around the city. Wigle has planned an amazing weekend for their birthday and a special release for the wine lovers.
During 2017, the Port Rye was debuted and became an instant favorite. This edition of the Port Rye features Wigle’s Pennsylvania Rye aged in new charred oak barrels and then transferred to Tawny Port wine barrels and aged for another eleven months. The result is a velvet sweet Rye, purplish in color and a very complex Whiskey.
On Friday, March 22nd is the 7th Birthday Bash for Wigle at the Wigle Whiskey Distillery in Pittsburgh’s Strip District. During the event you will have a chance to meet the distiller and sample Port Rye. Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream will be on scene for treats. Adam Fitz will be performing for the evening and if guests pre-register you will receive a pastry from Prohibition Pastries. Wigle’s Birthday Bash goes from 6 PM to 9 PM and is free to attend.
Don’t miss this chance to wish Wigle a Happy Birthday and purchase this unique whiskey. To register for the event or for more information visit https://wiglewhiskey.com.
