Handcrafting & distilling the best whiskey possible while staying true to the “backwoods” heritage of ingenuity, independence, & hard work is the reason DR Distillery was founded. Western PA was once the whiskey capital of the United States in the early years of the country. Those techniques and knowledge have impacted American distilled spirits, legal & otherwise, ever since. DR Distillery is proud to be part of bringing the craft of small batch whiskey production back to Western PA.
DR Distillery partners with local farmers & businesses to obtain the highest quality locally grown grains. Our grain is hand-ground by us or by local mills and combined with limestone spring water to form the basis for every drop of quality whiskey and vodka we produce. Mash recipes and techniques handed down for generations result in consistent, high quality “beer” we distill. Small batch distilled in our Copper Pot Still & Thump Keg or our micro batch Column Still, our Spirits go into American made bottles from a local manufacturer.
American made white oak barrels are where our aged whiskies are matured. After our whiskies are created, we complete the circle began with local grain & spring water by creating livestock feed from the spent grain. The minimal of our water that is not reused in the distillery, is used to nourish grass for livestock, trees & plants for wildlife.
From grain malting to propagation of our own yeast strain to creating new & unique craft Spirits, DR Distillery is committed to constantly expanding what we do. The “old timers” who taught us whiskey making & self-reliance did it themselves and made quality whiskey they were proud of. Folks loved it then and we believe folks will now. There are easier ways to make whiskey, just not DR Distillery hand crafted whiskey.
