Join us for a haunted ghost tour and whiskey tasting!

We will stop at 6 different supernatural sites, the first five of which will include its own terrifying tale and complimentary whiskey pairing! Our sixth and final stop will be at the old paper mill…Triumph Brewery! Here, after chilling your spine, we will attempt to soothe your unease with a Halloween craft cocktail!

For those that are not yet aware, the streets of New Hope are notoriously haunted - quite possibly the most haunted town in America!

Located along the scenic Delaware River, New Hope has history dating back to before the Revolutionary war. The town's history and that of American whiskey in Pennsylvania parallel in many ways. Let’s discover where their stories cross. Each whiskey is thoughtfully paired with each of the six haunted sites on the tour. (Each pairing will involve what may have been historically accurate or what may have been available at the local tavern when each spirit lived and walked these very streets...)

Perhaps the thirsty specters of New Hope will join us for a sip...

Who we are

We are living in a renaissance of barrel aged liquors and the opportunity to sample exceptional drams has never been better. Let's embrace this modern revival of whisk(e)y in all of its forms. This group is for all lovers of the quaff- from the uninitiated to the aficionado. It's an opportunity to open our palates through tastings and meet some fellow enthusiasts. I started this group because I found that whisk(e)y bars are not very abundant outside of major metropolitan areas and one shouldn't be limited to the local bar's selection for tastings. There are local distilleries to tour and plenty of hidden jewels in bucks county that have yet to be visited.

Here we will be tasting an aged corn whiskey called Mellow Corn made by Heaven Hill Distillery.

This picturesque location right on the Delware River is directly across from the the ferry launch site that made New Hope an important town before the Revolutionary War. The location is eerie and the hauntings are notorious! We will discuss its haunted past and taste a classic rye whiskey with historic roots in Bucks County- Old Overholt Rye.

The Parry Mansion and Keepers and Company
The Parry Mansion was built in 1784 by Benjamin Parry, one of New Hope's founders. The house has the distinction of having been occupied by four gen-erations of Benjamin Parry's direct descendants. Not only does the Parry Mansion have a history of hauntings , but so does the shop next door! Keepers and Company is haunted by the ghosts of Jaques(once a local resident) and Britt(She prefers the back porch). We will take a short break to browse the shop. The pairing here will be James Pepper Whiskey.

Triumph Brewery
The Triumph Brewery Company in New Hope was built from the bones of an old paper mill. There are plenty of haunted sites near the brewery, but we will focus on the hauntings in what is now the New Hope Arts Center. Its foundations date back to before the Revolutionary War…unexplained phenomena abound there even today! We will enjoy an autumn inspired cocktail in a skull glass to wrap up the evening.
