Explore Downtown for a whiskey history tour! You’ll learn why Southwestern Pennsylvania is considered the birthplace of American Whiskey, what the Whiskey Rebellion in Pittsburgh was all about, and how Prohibition affected the region in the 1920s. Scout out hidden former (as well as existing!) speakeasies around the city, and discover how whiskey has fueled political, labor and social movements throughout the region. Get to experience the revival of craft spirits in Pittsburgh and find out about Wigle’s own history as a local and family-owned business. 3 whiskey samples will make a great finale of this experience as well as discounted whiskey cocktails for only $5 (on Saturdays).

This tour will be about 2 hours long long, approx. 1.5 miles of walking.

Please note:
a. This is NOT A BAR CRAWL but rather a whiskey history tour with a final tasting.
b. On SATURDAYS this tour ends at the Wigle Whiskey Tasting Room.
c. On SUNDAYS we will end at the starting point (our shop) where Wigle Whiskey will be sampled (free unlimited refills :-)
d. Face masks can be taken off if a valid vaccination card can be shown. Every participant will have to sign a waiver.

I followed my husband to Pittsburgh seven years ago, and saw the opportunity to reinvent myself. Inspired by Michael's entrepreneurial spirit I decided to offer historical tours through Pittsburgh. Since I earned a Master's Degree in Art and Architectural History, and I used to live in Rome (Italy), Berlin (Germany) as well as New York City (all great places for art + architecture), I though this would be e great fit. So I founded Bike the Burgh Tours first in 2015, and added Walk the Burgh Tours a year and a half later. After two years of doing every tour myself, I found some equally passionate and enthusiastic, local tour guides who love this city and also strive for excellence. We love to show off our city, we love our job, and we love meeting people from all around the world! Come join us while exploring the Burgh!

Destinations

We will start at the Convention Center in the Cultural District and walk our way through the Financial District, weaving in and out of small alleyways, and former sites of whiskey making, selling and drinking. The tour would usually end at an original speakeasy and the Wigle Tasting Room in the oldest hotel in town (William Penn Hotel), but due to COVID-19 and its closure we will have the final tasting of local craft whiskey at the starting point

We had the best time on the whiskey walking tour. It was the perfect way to view the city through a different lens. We learned so many fun new facts and were thoroughly entertained by our tour guide the whole time. Highly recommend!

DO THIS TOUR! Even if you don’t like whiskey, it was a wonderful experience and Corrie was a fantastic tour guide. Very entertaining and made friends along the way. 10/10

Excellent way to get a taste of some local whiskey along with a quick history lesson of Pittsburgh and its biggest jag-offs (aka jerks)!

This tour was excellent from beginning to end! Val and Corrie were super welcoming from the very start. Corrie’s knowledge of the history and the city is excellent and she is a great storyteller. The walk wasn’t grueling and she gives a lot of sitting breaks while she weaves the tale of the history of the buildings, the city and how it all relates back to the whiskey! And at the end we got to taste some alcohol and have some delicious cocktails all while making friends with our fellow tour group. Great introduction to the city for us and would totally do it again!
