Rebellious Spirits Day Trip

September 24, 2023, 8:30 a.m. — 6:30 p.m.

Join Rivers of Steel for a daylong adventure that expertly blends the region’s whiskey and history, served up with an interactive cherry on top. Your journey begins at the Pump House, where you’ll leave your car and cares behind as you shuttle through time and space to become immersed in all things related to the Whiskey Rebellion.

This tours-and-tastings experience includes visits to the Whiskey Rebellion Visitors Center and three Washington County distilleries, paired with lunch and outings to three additional heritage sites related to our nation’s first test to its fledgling democracy.

Between stops, one of Rivers of Steel’s expert tour guides will contextualize the day’s narratives, introducing you to the rebellious spirits, dubbed the Friends of Liberty, who sought to defeat a tax on whiskey, along with their counterparts, the Friends of Order.

The excursion ends back at the Pump House for a guided mixology experience with a professional bartender. Create your own Monongahela Rye cocktail utilizing spirits from West Overton Village’s Educational Distillery.
