About Wigle Whiskey and Threadbare Cider

 

Since opening its retail doors in March 2012, Wigle Whiskey, Pittsburgh’s first distillery since Prohibition, has worked to restore Western Pennsylvania’s legacy as the Rye Whiskey epicenter of the country. Wigle is a community distillery which makes spirits from grain to bottle, using local, certified organic ingredients. The Distillery serves as a community educational space and a dedicated innovation space for spirits. Wigle promotes transparency in distillation, as we build our collective spirits palate and return terroir to whiskey! The Distillery is a top attraction in Pittsburgh on Trip Advisor and more than 60,000 visitors visit the Distillery each year to learn about Whiskey production and its regional history. Wigle spirits are distributed in eight states and have won a host of medals, including a Best in Category gold at the 2015 American Craft Spirits Association Competition for its Organic Deep Cut Rye Whiskey and Best in Category gold at the 2016 American Craft Spirits Association Competition for its Straight Wheat Whiskey and Barrel Rested Ginever.

Wigle is committed to maintaining a collaborative environment that supports the work and spirits of its very talented and eclectic crew members. While our staff has diverse backgrounds, all crew members share some common traits: Wigle team members are passionate about craft spirits, energetic, endlessly curious, kind, optimistic and full of grit. 

 

The Wigle Team has initiated plans to build and open a cidery on Pittsburgh's North Side, a couple blocks from its Barrelhouse and Whiskey Garden. Threadbare aims to open in October 2017.
