Philadelphia Distilling

Opening in 2005, Philadelphia Distilling is the first craft distillery in Pennsylvania since before Prohibition. In 2015, company founder, Andrew Auwerda hired Neff Associates to craft a custom PR and social media campaign for the brand.

Specifically, the Neff team was challenged to elevate the Philadelphia Distilling portfolio by publicizing the small-batch limited release of Bluecoat Barrel Finished Gin, and build buzz around the news of a brand new distillery in Fishtown, Philadelphia.
