In Philly, you can’t throw a stone without hitting a brewery, and the wine bar scene continues to grow, but those in-the-know get just as excited about Philly’s excellent distilleries as they do beer and wine. Local liquors like gin, whiskey, and rum are available for purchase from many of the distilleries around the region, and tasting rooms mean you can try a cocktail before taking bottles home. Stocking up on handcrafted gin and whiskey means the people of Philadelphia can drink well while supporting local businesses.
The one catch: It can be easier to find inexpensive alcohol at the state stores, so expect to pay a bit more when going local.
