Soon, fans of Old Republic Distillery won’t have to travel to Seven Valleys to buy a bottle of its Apple Pie Moonshine or Blackberry Vodka.
The distillery is relocating its tasting room to the York Crossing shopping center in West Manchester Township. It hopes to open in a 1,300-square-foot space in the shopping center by mid-to-late September.
The move is expected to raise Old Republic’s profile and boost sales, said Denise Mathias, 45, who owns the distillery with her brother Bill Mathias, 44.
Old Republic, thought to be the only distillery in York County and the first to open here since Prohibition, has developed a loyal following since launching in March 2013.
