Pennsylvania Peach by Wigle Whiskey2401 Smallman St., Strip District. wiglewhiskey.com
In its first cross-state collaboration, Wigle Whiskey brings us its Pennsylvania Peach whiskey in conjunction with Tröegs Independent Brewing. The process behind the spirit sounds delicious: first, the whiskey is distilled from regionally grown wheat grain, aged for four years in charred oak barrels, and then transferred to Tröegs and steeped with peaches and apricots. $1 from each bottle will go toward Feeding Pennsylvania’s mission to connect food-insecure Pennsylvanians with surplus from local farms.
