Under the direction of Master Distiller, Barry Young, Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries is committed to taking the unexpected approach in creating truly authentic handcrafted spirits. Using locally sourced ingredients, our spirits are created to stand out in a market cluttered with mediocrity, to demonstrate true craftsmanship in distilling. To ensure quality in taste, Young uses his “unique Instinct Palate Distillation method”, which means that the determining factor as to when the distillation process is complete is purely based off of taste and his instinct alone. There is no automation involved whatsoever in this process.
