Pottstown’s Manatawny Still Works is partnering up with its Circle of Progress neighbor, Sly Fox Brewery to release a new whiskey. The whiskey starts with Sly Fox’s Nihilist Stout without the hops. It is then distilled and aged for more than three years in American oak. The whiskey is described as having notes of coffee and sweet malt.
500 bottles will be available for $45 per 750 ml bottle. The distillery is hosting a kickoff event on Sunday, March 8th and its Passyunk Tasting Room at noon. In addition to bottles for sale there will also be tastings and cocktails plus baked goods by Philadelphia chef Monica Glass that will be featuring the whiskey.
Completing the “circle of progress,” each Sly Fox tasting room and including Pottstown, Phoenixville and Wyomissing as well as Manatawny’s distillery location in Pottstown will be tapping kegs of the Nihilist Imperial Stout that have been aged in used Manatawny casks on Saturday, November 14th. Each location will also have the whiskey for sampling.
