Five Saints Distilling


'Tis the season to try a Poinsettia – Five Saints' handcrafted vodka, a white sparkling wine, cranberry juice, and triple sec. Make your friends choose the next round from Five Saints’ cocktail menu which includes the Candy Cane Martini, North Pole Nog, and the Mistletoe Kiss. Five Saints makes their alcohol from corn and rye grown in Elverson, PA, and they're happy to show you how in-person or with their virtual tasting tours.

Manatawny Still Works


Manatawny Still Works is selling three small-batch holiday powerhouses – Four Grain Whiskey, Apple Brandy, and American Gold Rum. The Gold Rum is the perfect addition to your holiday eggnog or coquito. See if you can detect the notes of sweet apple and baking spices in the Apple Brandy and savor the aroma of French oak in the Four Grain Whiskey.

Boardroom SpiritsBoardroom Spirits


Santa is done with milk. This year he's only drinking hot chocolate spiked with Boardroom Spirits' Nocino, a black walnut liqueur from the owners' Hungarian family recipe. (Santa's drinking habits couldn't be verified at the time of publication, but we can confirm that Boardroom also offers 4-packs of Moscow mules and flavorful cranberry vodka.) If you'd like to taste the Nocino and their other spirits for yourself, check out their cocktail workshops at the distillery.

Beer at Conshohocken Brewery Co

Like the family recipe for latkes or sugar cookies, you don't mess with success at Conshohocken Brewing Company, which features consistent winter holiday beers. The first returning hero is You Can't Catch Me gingerbread ale, brewed with sugar, spice, everything nice, and gingersnap cookies. You can also sample 2 Hour Delay Hazy Winter IPA, with hints of citrus, coconut, and pine. Order 4-packs online once the winter packs release, or visit their taproom, which has sister properties in King of Prussia, Bridgeport, Phoenixville, and Havertown.
