New Liberty Distillery
Did someone say Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey? New Liberty Distillery would be an absolute killer location for a corporate holiday party with their three story 110-year-old stable turned distillery. Their passions revolve around revisiting the lost flavor of rye and distilling it in their Heritage Collection. As if that wasn’t cool enough, this gorgeous restoration reveals their custom copper-pot still, a rick house to barrel the whiskey, and beautifully decorated tasting room and bar. This historic and rustic space makes an ideal backdrop for any of the Mole Street Artists folk bands, and would make the perfect setting for enjoying some spirits and celebrating the holiday season. Ladybird is a multi-instrument, harmony-based, folk/bluegrass trio who would add the perfect music to this space. Their influences range all the way from traditional Americana to Swedish Folk & Jazz. Another band that would go seamlessly is the familiar sound of The Stonethrowers. This group has played the Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Kimmel Center, Sellersville Theatre, Musikfest.
