For the Spirits Guru

Gettysburg is tapping into the distilling industry and we have just the itinerary to get you sipping on these spirits yourself.

Day 1

Get started with drinks and lunch at Mason Dixon Distillery, just outside of downtown Gettysburg. If you like your drinks straight you can drink their vodka, rum and whiskey smooth on the rocks, or try them in a craft cocktail. Their food is equally amazing. Try favorites like their Shrimp and Grits or Poutine. What makes them unique? The grains in their spirits are grown right on the Gettysburg battlefield! Don’t forget to get your passport stamped.

Next, head downtown and explore charming Lincoln Square. Head in to Mount Hope Winery at Gettysburg for Spirits Distilling Company spirits produced at Mount Hope Estate. A line of standard varieties are produced, but the main attraction are the spirits distilled from other estate beverages, capturing the essence of the original product in its new form. Wine, cider, mead and beer are also produced at the estate. Then, stop by the David Wills House or the Shriver House Museum or take a walking tour with the Gettysburg Licensed Town Historians. After soaking in some history, have another drink at Tattered Flag Tap Room or Appalachian Brewing Company (ABC) - Battlefield. Both are located right along Steinwehr Avenue and serve both spirits AND beer.

Before heading to your next stop, check out one of Gettysburg’s suspenseful escape rooms. Use the clues and riddles provided to work together with your group to get out before time runs out! Whether you win or lose, reward yourself for a valiant effort with a drink at Spirits of Gettysburg Distillery. Spirits of Gettysburg Distillery is the first licensed distillery in Gettysburg and Adams County since prohibition and shares the historic site with Battlefield Brew Works. Both are located inside a Civil War era barn used as a Confederate Field Hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg. Getting hungry? Battlefield Brew Works/Spirits of Gettysburg Distillery will satisfy your appetite with their menu. We recommend their Smoked Elk Sausage with Jalapeño and Cheddar or their 3 Cheese Chili Lime Corn Quesadilla. Or head to the other ABC location - Appalachian Brewing Company - Gateway just off of Route 30. Grab a bite and collect two more stamps in your passport by sampling both their spirits and their beer. Appalachian Craft Spirits make your favorite cocktails even better!

Now that you’re an expert on Adams County’s spirits, venture into its other craft beverages to complete the Pour Tour and enter to win a getaway to Gettysburg!
