Tommyrotter Distillery has expanded its distribution to Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania is a control state, which means it directly oversees the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages within state limits. In July, Tommyrotter founders Bobby Finan and Sean Insalaco appealed to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to carry their products. After several months of review, Tommyrotter was accepted. It is now sold throughout the state.
Tommyrotter, a small-batch distillery using raw materials from New York State, opened in 2015 in the Hydraulics district.
Tommyrotter American Gin is available at 51 of the 600 liquor stores overseen by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. The company's Cask Strength Bourbon Barrel Gin and Small Batch Vodka can also be special ordered.
