Known for reviving the region’s distilling tradition, Wigle Whiskey crafts an array of award-winning spirits from their production room in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.

As Wigle has grown from one location to five (including two retail outlets and their Threadbare Cider House Tasting Room & Restaurant), GBBN has helped them extend their brand through spaces that capture their spirit of innovation, authenticity, and community pride. There’s room for making, tasting, buying, and celebrating in the renovated warehouse in North Side that serves as Wigle’s primary distillery.

GBBN custom-designed fiber optic light fixture, manufactured by a local fabricator’s a catalyst, sparking new interest in the surrounding neighborhood.

Wigle’s Threadbare Ciderhouse creates a vibrant community and retail center that celebrates the production of Wigle’s hard ciders and gives new life to an old tannery in Pittsburgh’s Spring Garden neighborhood.

With its exterior space, performance stage, and demonstration counter, the Barrelhouse in Spring Garden does more than extend Wigle’s ageing and experimenting capabilities; it’s a catalyst, sparking new interest in the surrounding neighborhood.
