The cool factor of this region is off the charts. After all, the punch that started a 2-year protest against The Whiskey Tax was thrown here. It’s only fitting this pass spans 90 days, allowing you to fully experience and celebrate the raucous riots of the 1700’s. We can’t promise you’ll be a part of a rebellion while visiting, but we can absolutely guarantee you’ll taste spirit flights that embody the same passion. Check it out when you visit the historic museums and sites in the passes, or live it for yourself at a festival where history and whiskey collide.

Included Distilleries and Venues

Bradford House Museum

Step over the threshold of the Bradford House Museum, a National Historic Landmark, and into imagined life in late 18th century America—the scurry of servants, the sighs of the master, David Bradford, as he writes at his desk, the hushed chatter of ladies examining a bolt of crimson silk. Docents dressed in 18th century clothing entertain and inform as they detail the structure and hint at the intrigues of the Whiskey Rebellion. From its thick stone walls, mahogany bannister, and 14-foot ceilings to its Chippendale and Hepplewhite furnishings, the house is magnificent.

It is the doings of the Whiskey Rebellion (a grassroots challenge to the newly-formed federal government), though, that provide the mystique. Did David Bradford and his colleagues really examine stolen mail at the dining room table? Why is a portrait of Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton hanging upside down over the mantle in the tavern display, and why did the federal government not strive to protect its frontier citizens from American Indian attacks? Think on these things as you meander the brick path through a garden of daffodils, thyme, and edible nasturtiums on your way to the log cookhouse, with its visions of churning butter and roasting meat. This is living history!

Additionally, the Bradford House Museum is located on the Historic National Road, and within blocks of the museum, there are two whiskey distilleries, a craft beer distillery and a winery. So, come spend the day in downtown Washington, PA, as we remember the Whiskey Rebellion.

Golden Eagle Inn

The Golden Eagle Inn, built by Dr. John Anderson in 1794, was first known as the Anderson Mansion. As the first brick building built in Bedford, it is also one of the oldest buildings in the downtown and is on the National Register of Historic Places. As an inn it has been known as many titles; the Pennsylvania House, the Farmers’ House, and the National House before finally being named the Golden Eagle (after a tavern that was once in the basement).

In the 1800’s the Inn became a fixture of Bedford’s annual agricultural fair housing the people who came in from the surrounding areas with their animals. Livestock was stabled in the back of the inn, while the farmers stayed at the inn while conducting business and trade in town. As it focused on hospitality and good food, it remained open as an inn until the mid-1960’s when the owner closed it to the public and used it as a private residence.

Jack and Orallee Kiefer bought the inn in 1990 and restored it to its current elegance. After more then 20 years, Oralee decided to retire.  In July of 2013, the Helsel family, along with their husbands took ownership of the grand building. Today, we at the Golden Eagle are excited to invite the public through her doors to share in the buildings history and her future.

Kingfly Spirits

Craft distillery, cocktail bar and premier event venue in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Strip District.

WHATS INCLUDED
  • Tasting Flight Voucher

Lawrenceville Distilling Co.

We’re not afraid to admit that our stills are small. Or that our master distiller, Joe, works in small quantities, distilling and bottling each batch by hand.

Joe knows that small stills put your spirits up against more copper. And that more copper means a smoother finish and less aftertaste.

His methods deliver results: each spirit that he produces has been awarded medals in either national or international competitions, and Lawrenceville Distilling Co. was recently named the 2019 Pennsylvania Gin Distillery of the Year by the Tenth Annual New York International Craft Spirits Competition.

The Lawrenceville Distilling Co. distills small batches of spirits by hand at our independently owned distillery in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood.

We exclusively distill Parking Chair Vodka, 1129 Ridge Ave Absinthe Traditionelle, and Ginzer American Gin.

  • Cocktail Voucher

Liberty Pole Spirits

In 1791, one of the first American Industries was born: Whiskey.

For years, the grain that wasn't consumed was preserved in the form of distilled spirits. It was safer to drink than contaminated water and improved the spirits of friends and neighbors. Through the imposition of an excise tax on whiskey, the grain farmers used their whiskey to barter for goods. Whiskey-making provided their best chance to survive, which is why farmers secretly met and vowed to stick together and not pay the tax. These farmers called themselves the Mingo Creek Society and planted Liberty Poles throughout the county where years later, they are preserved as a story of their defiance. Today, the Liberty Pole is displayed on the label of each whiskey bottle we create, distilled in the famous Mingo Creek Meetinghouse, symbolizing the loving appreciation for a craft that once again brings livelihood to a proud community.

Maggie's Farm Rum

Allegheny Distilling is an urban distillery located in the historic Strip District of Pittsburgh and maker of Maggie’s Farm Rum, the first commercially-available Pennsylvania-made craft rum since Prohibition. Maggie’s Farm is more about what it isn’t, a corporate entity where marketing gimmicks and bottom lines trump taste and quality. Maggie’s Farm is an independent craft distillery founded without the support of banks or venture capitalists.

All of our rums are distilled from turbinado, a raw cane, rather than molasses and pot-distilled for body and flavor on 100% copper Spanish-made stills. We produce our rums using Caribbean-derived yeasts with long fermentation times for high ester production. Even our white rums are lightly aged for additional smoothness and ester development. All of our aged rums are now pushing two years old and aged in neutral rum casks, same as most Caribbean distillers do, to preserve the flavors and aromas produced by tertiary esterification. This is in contrast to the sometimes overly oaky flavors produced by new charred or ex-whiskey casks used by most American craft rum distillers. And all of our stills and manufacturing processes are on display right behind the cocktail bar in our distillery’s tasting room located in Pittsburgh’s industrial Strip District, so you know exactly where your rums are coming from.

Old Stone Tavern

With a cornerstone dated 1758, the Old Stone Tavern is disputably the oldest building in Pittsburgh. Ledgers discovered have placed 89 Whiskey Rebellion Rebels at this tavern while they planned their raid on John Neville's estate. Today, while it is on the List of City of Pittsburgh historic designations, sadly, it sits abandoned.

Pittsburgh's Old Stone Tavern Friends Trust incorporated in 2013 with the mission statement to secure Pittsburgh's Old Stone Tavern and its property, provide for its long term preservation, and educate the public regarding its significance in United States History

Oliver Miller Homestead

The Oliver Miller Homestead is a historic stone house with reconstructed outbuildings located in South Park in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The first shots of the Whiskey Rebellion were fired nearby on Miller family land. Volunteer docents in period dress share information about Rebellion events, the Miller family’s involvement, and depict frontier life. Open on Sundays from May to early December, 1:30-4:30PM, the House is on the National Register of Historic Places.
