All our cocktails are hand crafted, and all our Spirits are all our Brands.

We make our own Syrups;

  • Brown Sugar

We don’t skimp on ingredients and you won’t find any store bought mixers here. We take hours per week before we open to make most everything that makes it into your cocktail. We take the time to hand make every cocktail.

Who we are, Where we are, & When are we Open

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. Note: We are Pet Friendly so the chance of seeing a pup or two (on a leash) is about 50%.

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.
