During Washington’s Whiskey Rebellion Festival on Saturday, A&M Wine & Beer Supplies will host the 3rd Annual Whiskey Rebellion Homebrew Competition at their store at the corner of Main and Maiden Streets.
The farmers of the Mingo Creek Settlement in Southwestern Pennsylvania placed Liberty Poles along roads and in town centers to protest the 1791 Federal Excise Tax on whiskey manufacturing. They called themselves the Mingo Creek Society and met to discuss their fate at the Mingo Creek Meetinghouse, just outside of Monongahela. Today, a new Meetinghouse has returned to Washington and a revitalized Mingo Creek Society is distilling hand-crafted whiskeys and bourbons from locally sourced grains. View the production in a warmly restored, turn-of-the-century monument factory called Liberty Pole Spirits Distillery at 68 W. Maiden Street, in Washington. We look forward to seeing you during the festival.
Red Pump Spirits is a family owned small batch craft distillery located in Washington, Pennsylvania – the Home of the Whiskey Rebellion. At our distillery located at 32 N. Main Street we produce for the local communities unique whiskeys and liqueurs of exceptional quality. While we respect the traditions of whiskey making, we also innovate with grains and processing techniques to bring to our customers products for today’s tastes. We have a Tasting Room where you can sample our products as well as purchase spirits by the bottle. We source locally as much as possible. And every Saturday at the distillery are tasting and tour events where you can sample our spirits and get a lesson in how spirits are produced. There is a fee for the events, which is donated to local charities. Thank you for taking the time to learn of our company. We hope to see you at the festival.
