In the spirit of our mission to honor the people, places and traditions of our local Pennsylvania distilling history, we purchased 2 skids of brick from a local distillery that began in 1815 and closed due to Prohibition. One of their many products throughout the years was Lititz Springs Pure Rye Whiskey. We’re looking forward to using them in our distillery as we make rye whiskey in Lititz once again.
Here’s an 1883 ad advertising Double Distilled Rye Whiskey, DD Burkholder proprietor.
