Philly Made: Bluebird Distilling

Last week I had the opportunity to join a group of Philly bartenders and spirits experts at Bluebird Distilling in Phoenixville, a town just outside of Philadelphia. I tasted their spirits at Martha Bar before so I was excited to see where the magic happens. Here are a few photos from the trip.

Bluebird Distilling was founded in June of 2015 by Jared Adkins, his father, and their close friend Pierre. After years of research, education, and experimentation they bought and renovated an abandoned building on the corner of town and made it into a world-class distillery where they distil their award winning spirits.

There are 8 spirits in the line-up. Here are some quick facts about each:

  • Four Grain Bourbon – Made from a blend of corn, rye wheat and barley. Mashed grains are distilled only once and the bourbon is aged in new charred American oak barrels.

  • White Rye Whiskey – Made from 100% American Rye. Hints of dried cacao with a smooth, dry, and spicy finish.

  • Rye Whiskey – Made from 100% American rye grain. Distilled once in new charred American oak barrels which creates an exceptional blend of sweetness and spice.

  • Wheat Whiskey
  • Sugarcane Rum – Made from 100% American Rye. Hints of dried cacao with a smooth, dry, and spicy finish.

  • Juniperus Gin – First distilled from rye, it is then redistilled and vapor infused with botanicals and spices from around the world. A refreshing blend of cucumber, citric zest, juniper and exotic spices.

  • Vodka – Distilled in small batches inside a copper still with the finest American rye grain. Crisp and refreshing, not the usual vodka.

The Wheat Whiskey, Juniperus Gin and Vodka were my favorite. The gin was especially interesting. It’s spicier than a typical gin, which really makes it stand apart and taste delicious.

  • I've been cracking code all day working on a new website design for a client and yet it is STILL snowing up here in the mountains so I've been building fires all day.

I gotta admit tho - the sound of a crackling fire does me some good. Calms my nerves and helps me get cozy on the couch when cranking out new WordPress websites. All in a day's work. #webdesigner #westcodigital

  • I recently decided to write down my values - the principles that act as a foundation for everything I do. When things get tough, these are the values I re-read, the ones that ground me and steer me in the right direction.

Transparency - Communicate honestly with compassion.

Dedication - Work Hard. Innovate.

Servant’s Heart - Treat others with respect. Follow the golden rule.

Quality - What I do, I do well.

Integrity - Be real.

What values resonate with you?

  • Moving across the country has taught me a lot. It will show you who your true friends are. Having Danielle and Alex here this past week has reminded me what true connection feels like. Friends who see you, who know you, and who love you. I’m still establishing myself here in Colorado and as an introvert who works from home, it can be tough to find those connections. I’m so thankful for these two and the support they give me. Can’t wait to reunite again soon! But next time with our missing link - @hannah.eshleman 😊🥰
