Manatawny Still Works Opens Craft Spirits Shop & Tasting Room on Passyunk Avenue in South Philadelphia

Storefront sells bottles to go and flights and cocktails at its bar.


Taking full advantage of its Limited Distilling license, Pottstown’s Manatawny Still Works has opened a satellite location at 1603 E Passyunk Avenue, in the heart of one of Philadelphia’s most vibrant restaurant and bar corridors.

The satellite license, a recent Pennsylvania benefit of changes to the state’s liquor code allows the tasting room to provide the same offerings as the distillery. That means the Craft Spirits Shop and Tasting Room can offer tastings, flights and cocktails.

During the day, the location is primarily a bottle shop, offering full-size bottles of Manatawny’s line of spirits, tastings of the spirits and a limited menu of mixed drinks.

In the evening, the space transforms into a full cocktail bar featuring spirit forward drinks showcasing the distillery’s whiskey, gin, rum and vodka. Pennsylvania beers, wines and ciders are also offered.

Though the Craft Spirits Shop and Tasting Room doesn’t offer food, it does sport a liberal BYOF(ood) policy and encourages patrons to bring in some of the great food that can be found up and down Passyunk Avenue.

The rich neighborhood experience is what brought Manatawny Still Works to Passyunk Avenue. Philadelphia Manager Arthur Etchells is excited to partner with local businesses, having already struck a collaborative note with Green Aisle Grocery, which has created an exclusive Bloody Mary mix for the shop. “We’re excited to be here and be part of this neighborhood. Whether that means collaborative endeavors or just knowing which of our spirits pair well with mixes available at the neighborhood’s many BYOBs, we want to be an integral part of this great neighborhood.”

Etchells is also excited to connect with locals via a series of specials that will be signaled by different flags. “If you see a City of Philadelphia flag flying, rest assured there are specials on ‘citywides’ (the Philadelphia tradition of a canned beer and a side of whiskey). We’ll also have other specials that will be tailored to the flags. For example, an Eagles flag might mean we’re offering some smaller bottle sizes that are perfect for tailgating.”

In addition to Manatawny Still Works’ spirits, the shop also sells cocktail connected gifts like barrel aging kits and t-shirts, plus other local artisanal goods from local brands like Side Project Jerky.
Manatawny Still Works Craft Spirits Shop and Tasting Room is open from noon to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and from noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays. Look for expanded hours in the fall.
