A Pittsburgh Landmark. Reborn.

Once home to Joseph S. Finch & Co., the last pre-prohibition whiskey distillery in the city, 129 McKean Street is being reborn.

Designed as a community gathering spot with a focus on hand-crafted food, spirits, and wares, The Distillery at South Shore will feature a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, a 5,000 square foot craft spirits distillery and tasting room with walk-up access from the Riverwalk, an eclectic artisanal marketplace with local merchants sharing their craft, a rooftop bar with expansive views of downtown Pittsburgh, and much more. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for the latest news as the project takes shape.

Prime Location in Pittsburgh's South Shore

Located along the Southside riverfront trail in the heart of Pittsburgh’s booming South Shore, The Distillery is just steps away from two of the city’s biggest residential, office, and retail redevelopment projects.

Hand-Crafted Food, Spirits & Wares

With an emphasis on craft and community, The Distillery will be home to multiple restaurants, a craft spirits distillery, a unique artisanal marketplace with local merchants, and much more.

The Best Downtown Views in the City

The Distillery will feature a rooftop bar overlooking the Monongahela River and the downtown Pittsburgh skyline. Imagine enjoying a craft cocktail while watching the 4th of July fireworks at PNC Park!
