Today our vendor spotlight highlights Wigle Whiskey and Threadbare Cider, a distillery and cider house that use locally sourced ingredients to produce spirits and ciders. 

Wigle Whiskey, headquartered in the Strip District, started in 2011 and officially opened to the public in 2012 with our first product. Almost everything that goes into Wigle products will be locally sourced organic grains. Everything, from start to finish, is done within Pittsburgh’s city limits. We don’t get batches of neutral spirits from some big manufacturer from the middle of the country to supply us, which helps set us apart from the vast majority of our competitors here in Pennsylvania. 

Threadbare Cider, located in the Spring Garden neighborhood, was developed as an idea in 2015 and opened in 2017. Like Wigle, most of our apples that go into Threadbare ciders come from a farm near Wexford. However, we sometimes go into New York and other nearby states for very specific varieties of apples, such as Northern Spy apples. This variety is one of the few remaining apples that would have been around during the time of Johnny Appleseed as he went east to west planting apple trees.

Our team is an amazing group of part-time folks who love working for Wigle and Threadbare because they believe in the products and the mission statements of the companies, which basically are to get the best possible spirits and ciders out to the world and help educate everyone on the history of alcohol in the Pennsylvania region.

We’ve been involved with the Bellevue Farmers Market for several years. I love the great space and great people! There will usually be part-time staff members there; they are great people who love to chat about alcohol if you want to stop by.
