June 19, 2019- Bluebird Distilling, Phoenixville’s award-winning grain-to-glass distillery, is celebrating four years of craft distilling with Bluebird Bonanza, an indoor-outdoor party, as well as three limited edition spirit releases!
This Sunday, June 23rd from 1-6 pm guests are invited to enjoy new and unique gin and brandy cocktails, live music courtesy of The Holts and Chris and Kellina, a newly expanded outdoor patio with food trucks, lawn games and more.
Jared Adkins, Bluebird Distilling Founder, is honoring the fourth anniversary by releasing a limited-edition Peach Brandy, as well as two limited-edition spirits from its archives, including the Blueberry Brandy and Barrel Rested American Gin.
Bluebird Distilling was awarded the 2019 Innovation Award in the brandy category for the Blueberry Brandy, a passion project turned work of art. Local blueberries were harvested, crushed, fermented and distilled into a delicate blueberry spirit, which was then aged in new American barrels, lightly charred to caramelize the barrel’s sugars. The light blueberry spirit fuses with the oak creating tantalizing notes of blueberry, vanilla, oak and crème brûlée.
The Barrel Rested American Gin is a marriage of epic proportions. The gin base spirit is distilled from scratch and is then redistilled with a propriety blend of citrus, juniper, and botanicals. The American style gin is then rested in freshly dumped Four Grain Bourbon and Wheat Whiskey barrels for one year. The aging process awakens the gin to boast velvety layers of vanilla, citrus, honeysuckle, candy and spice.
These three limited-edition spirits will only be available at the Phoenixville distillery. Guests can enjoy complimentary tastes of all three at the Bluebird Bonanza.
