Le Coeur Noir
An herbal coffee liqueur made with locally roasted, cold brewed coffee? Yep, that’s what this is. We use fellow Kensington based, ReAnimator Coffee’s Telemetry Blend. ReAnimated Roasts and grinds the coffee, we infuse and distill and herbal liquor, cold brew the coffee then combine the two. Le Coeur Noir will satisfy even the most black hearted coffee addict.

Our friend Tom Baker is best known for his beer. Tom is an owner/brewer for two of Philadelphia’s finest brew pubs – Earth Bread + Brewery, and Bar Hygge. What you might not know is that Tom loves his rum. So Browne Baker Rum is the result of a collaboration between Dean and Tom. Browne Baker Rum is made in a Jamaican style, using only black strap molasses. It is fermented with a neutral yeast and then rested in American Oak whiskey barrels for 6 months. The result is a wonderfully sippable rum with almost scotch-like flavors. Browne Baker Rum is bottled at 90 proof.
(e) Malt Whiskey
Rowhouse Spirits (e) Malt Whiskey is made from 100% malted barley. It is fermented with a special yeast which produces a huge amount of flavor. After being pot distilled twice, (e) rests for a year in american oak barrels which have been used once to age American Rye whiskey. The result is a rye-like, full flavored malt. (e) is bottled at 100 proof.
We make a variety of brandies - all from Pennsylvania fruit! So far we made brandy from wild foraged Paw Paw fruit, apples from Southeastern PA, and cabernet sauvignon from Calkins Vineyards in the western Poconos. Our brandy is aged for a minimum of two years in oak barrels. Bottling proof varies with each batch.
"Poitín" is Gaelic for "small pot". Rowhouse Spirits Poitín is white whisky made from 100% malted barley, fermented with beer yeast and run through our small pot-still twice. Our Poitín is bottled at 96 proof.
What makes it a "white" whisky? Well, traditionally, whisky gets its color from contact with wood - usually through aging in an oak barrel. Poitín is not aged in oak, in fact, it's not aged at all, so there is nothing to give it any color. The flavor of our Poitín all comes from the malted barley and from the carefully selected beer yeast that we use.
How do you enjoy Poitín? I like mine neat, but you can basically treat this like a full flavored white spirit (such as cachaca or tequila) or like a mild whisky. In cocktails, Poitín really likes citrus and bitters.
