•Pottstown, Pennsylvania-based Manatawny Still Works has opened a craft spirits shop and tasting room in South Philadelphia. Located at 1603 E. Passyunk Avenue, Manatawny’s new location will retail full-size bottles of the distillery’s whiskey, gin, rum and vodka offerings during the daytime hours. In the evening it will transform into a full cocktail bar, selling spirits-based concoctions as well as Pennsylvania-made beers, wines and ciders. Manatawny recently gained a satellite license for the new space, which under recent changes to the state’s liquor code is allowed to offer tastings, flights and cocktails just like Manatawny’s main distillery.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
