The only feeling that compares to seeing a whiskey you enjoyed come around again is the joy that comes from seeing a whiskey you really wanted to try but didn’t, return. That’s our case with the Single Barrel Straight Millstone Rye Whiskey from New Liberty Distillery which has just made a return.
The whiskey is aged for two years in American oak and is crafted from 100% rye grain from Pennsylvania’s Deer Creek Malthouse. The whiskey is described as having “delightful notes of honey and orange blossom peppered with spice from our locally sourced grains, mellowed to perfection by the wood of premium seasoned barrels.”
750 ml bottles of the 95 proof Rye whiskey are available for shipment across Pennsylvania and for pickup at New Liberty’s Kensington distillery for $69.99.
Ever wonder just how corn affects the taste of Bourbon? Then seek out bourbons that showcase different varietals like this limited release from Philadelphia’s New Liberty Distilling’s Kinsey line. Kinsey Blue Corn Bourbon is the latest corn specific whiskey, following on the heels of its Popcorn Bourbon, another specific corn release that has since sold out.
Here, the blue corn is described as “sweeter, nuttier notes to lend a buttery caramel aroma…. Rich nutmeg on the nose, mingled perfectly with candied spice, dried fruit, and cedar wood for a whole new take on tradition.”
Bottles of Kinsey Blue Corn Bourbon are $39.99 and available for curbside pickup, same day delivery to select Philadelphia zip codes and across the state by courier.
If you visit New Liberty this Saturday, you can paint a pumpkin in their courtyard while enjoying warm cocktails and Halloween treats.
Back in February, Dean Browne closed up his Rowhouse Spirits on Frankford Avenue in Kensington. Plan was to get more space to accommodate some new projects and reopen. But plans and 2020? Well yeah, 2020.
Browne has persevered and wound up landing in East Germantown, at 4717 Stenton Avenue. The Philadelphia neighborhood is suddenly attracting exciting businesses as Attic Brewing, Deke’s BBQ and Merzberger’s of Germantown, the re-branded and retail facing Philly Bread, have all opened their doors nearby.

One of the best things about craft spirits is seeing how releases change over time. And has the industry gets beyond the baby stage, the changes can be dramatic. It’s what makes Rowhouse Spirits’ four-year old brandy such a worthwhile spirit to seek out. Distiller Dean Browne is releasing a four-year old version of his PA Brandy made with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Quantities will be extremely limited.
Look for the brandy at Browne’s Frankford Avenue distillery in Kensington.
