Chester County Distillery to Expand into Center City

Kenneth Hilario

A Phoenixville, Pa.-based craft distillery is getting the Center City treatment with the opening of a retail location to let consumers, who haven't made the drive to the Chester County distillery, get their hands on its products.

Jared Adkins founded Bluebird Distilling in June 2015 after working for major companies like Pepsi and Nestlé, and a stint in the beer world.

The distillery became the first craft spirit distillery in Chester County, according to the company, the products of which are now available in 140 restaurants throughout the Philadelphia area.

The next step of its expansion strategy for 2017 includes a physical presence location through a pop-up tasting bar and retail shop at The Shops at Liberty Place in Center City.

Located at the 17th Street entrance of The Shops, experts said this move bodes well for the company and its potential permanent presence in Philadelphia.

Set to open in late May, the tasting bar and retail shop will take over the space vacated by an outpost of Brown Betty Dessert Boutique, a local woman- and minority-owned bakery, which last year closed its doors after more than a decade in operation to pursue wholesale opportunities.
