Where to Celebrate Father’s Day

Dad’s big day is almost here—are you ready? If you’re not, no sweat! There are plenty of opportunities right near your The Isle apartment to help you show the special in guy your life some love—from designer suit shops to chocolate stores to sports memorabilia boutiques, and everything in between. While finding the perfect gift can be an exciting challenge, if you’re not up for that adventure, consider giving Dad what he may really want most—the gift of time with you. Toast to the day with a trip out in Manayunk to take in the sights, sounds and sips of the city!

One of the most unique ways to treat your special guy is through a trip to Palmer Distilling Co. Located about six blocks from your The Isle apartment, Palmer is a new craft distillery that set up shop right here in our neck of the woods. The distillery’s signature product is Liberty Gin, derived from a recipe dating to the American Revolution and updated for modern tastes. It hangs onto its Revolutionary roots though, as it’s even distilled over in an open flame in a traditional copper pot.

You can see the distilling process firsthand with a tour of the facility. If Dad’s the type who likes to see how things work, this spot is certainly for him! And of course, after your tour, stick around for a drink or two. The distillery offers free tastings of its gin in a wide variety of recipes—many of which mimic cocktails that would have been served during Revolutionary times—as well as a full bar of cocktails, beers and wines. You can also grab of bottle of Manayunk Moonshine, Palmer’s newest product, to take home—a great conversation starter at your The Isle apartment!

This cozy spot is the perfect place to catch up with family and friends and treat your favorite guy to his favorite spirit.
