Wigle to open shop in Omni
With a modern distillery in the Strip District and a funky barrelhouse on the North Side, Wigle Whiskey has opted for opulent Downtown digs for a proper tasting room.
Wigle will open its third area location Monday in the lobby of the Omni William Penn Hotel. Billed as a tasting and bottle shop, it will feature flights of award-winning whiskeys, house cocktails, a buildyour-own Old-Fashioned option and absinthe drips.
The tasting room will be open daily at 530 William Penn Place near the hotel’s entrance on Oliver Avenue.
Wigle will give a sneak peak of the space from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday during a grand-opening party, which will include a buildyour-own Old-Fashioned in the tasting room, spirit sampling including a taste of Wigle Barrel No. 1, 5year-old Monongahela Rye Whiskey, hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail at one of the bar outlets. Tickets are $30 and are available at wiglewhiskey.com.
