The Distillery is a great extension of our winemaking background allowing us to make grape-based liquors, such as Grappa and Brandy. By using grapes grown right across the street, RRD has the rare ability to give its products the care needed to make truly original liquors in a process that we control from the harvest, to the moment a bottle goes out the door. That same care goes into crafting our products from our vodka, to our un-aged moonshine made from grain, and eventually our whiskey aged in fresh Pennsylvania oak barrels.
Ridge Runner Distillery offers not just a taste of southwest PA, but also a taste of the history of the region suppressed for nearly a century. From the heart of the whiskey rebellion, through the Ridge Runners (moonshiners) of prohibition, to the micro distillery renaissance sweeping our country, Ridge Runner Distillery retains the spirit of ingenuity and rebelliousness that distillers had 200 years ago, and bring it to the present day.
