Rob Cassell, Co-Founder Of Philadelphia Distilling
 

Watch the video above to meet Rob Cassell, Co-Founder of Philadelphia Distilling, and learn what he wishes more people knew about in Philadelphia.

With the help of two business partners, Master Distiller Cassell turned his passion for spirits into the first thriving craft distillery in Pennsylvania since Prohibition.

First, in 2006, the company introduced the world to Bluecoat Gin, an award-winning floral spirit made from certified-organic botanicals and distinguished by its smooth finish.

The 8,000 square-foot, Northeast Philadelphia-based distillery has since followed up that early success with Penn 1681 Rye Vodka, a spirit made with organic local rye, and Vieux Carre Absinthe Supérieure, the first absinthe to be legally distilled, bottled and sold in the East Coast of the United States in 100 years.
