3. Pittsburgh: Downtown Whiskey Walking Tour
Love whiskey? Walking? Pittsburgh? Then this sounds like the tour for you! From the mill to the still, whiskey has been a cornerstone in Pittsburgh's history. Come downtown for our whiskey history tour where you will discover how whiskey has fueled political, labor and social movements throughout the region. We start the tour with a sample of the oldest and longest continuously produced whiskey in America. A second taster of locally produced whiskey will get you into the mood to explore Pittsburgh's whiskey past and present. As we walk the streets of Downtown, you'll learn about the violent Whiskey Rebellion in Pittsburgh, hidden former (as well as existing!) speakeasies around the city, and how Prohibition affected the region. Besides that you will find out a lot about the revival of craft spirits, the history of a local and family-owned distillery and the first privately run liquor store in PA since before Prohibition. You will get 2 generous whiskey samples (endless refills!) at the beginning of the tour and 1 handcrafted cocktail at the Rebel Room, where you can hang out and grab dinner after the tour. ***Please note: This is NOT a bar crawl but a whiskey history tour that includes whiskey samples and one handcrafted cocktail. This even is 21+ only, no minors please.
