WHo we are & when are we Open

Holy Ghost is a distillery in the Poconos. HGD stands for community, faithfulness and most importantly, fellowship. We believe that cocktails create community, and that you are at the core of what we do and why we do it. Our goal is to create experiences where people feel as connected to Holy Ghost Distillery, to our products as they do to one another. Our goal is simple, to create a space where long lasting friendships are made and flourish while you enjoy our spirits and hand-crafted cocktails.

Our frequent customers from PA, NY, NJ, MD and all around the states and even Ireland & England simply refer to us as Holy Ghost, as we are much more than a distillery. Although we sell our spirits by the bottle, we also have hand-crafted cocktails, signature Holy Ghost beers, and awesome Holy Ghost experiences for everyone to enjoy. So come in to Holy Ghost and see what everyone is talking about.

Who we are

Located in the heart of the Poconos, where the PA Turnpike (NE Ext -Exit 95) and Interstate 80 intersect (exit 277), it is an easy 1.5 hour drive from Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey.  We are 2 miles east of the RT940 / I80 / I-476 interchange.

990 SR 940  White Haven, PA, 18661

Tasting House and Distillery Call: 570-990-2673
