Throughout the 1700 and 1800s, Western Pennsylvania was the epicenter of American Whiskey production. Wigle is named for one of those pioneering Pennsylvania distillers. In the 1790s, Phillip Wigle defended his right to distill in a tussle with a tax collector, and unwittingly helped spark the Whiskey Rebellion, which pitted Western Pennsylvania distillers against George Washington's troops.

The tour includes a cocktail to start, a hands on tour of the distillation process, a history of the Whiskey Rebellion told through the eyes of the company’s namesake, Philip Wigle, and a seated tasting of straight spirits. Throughout the tour they will regale you with the true tale of the Pittsburgh's Whiskey Rebellion, one of the country's quirkiest and pivotal events.
