Join Our Team!
Since 2011, 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.
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.
