Pottstown-based Manatawny Still Works’ retail shop and tasting room on Passyunk Avenue operates as their Philadelphia flagship. By day, the tasting room offers tasting flights of their spirits – gin, vodka, rum, and more varieties of whiskey than we can count – and by night serves up craft cocktails that showcase their portfolio. When manager Jennifer Sabatino came on board, she faced a dilemma: how do you serve some bar snacks without a kitchen? Jennifer got creative, and we think the result is pretty genius. In addition to sourcing ready-to-eat artisanal products from friends and neighbors – charcuterie from 1732 Meats, pickles from Green Aisle Grocery, bread from nearby Artisan Boulanger Patissier, dessert from nearby Vanilya Bakery – she took a cue from Spanish tapas bars that specialize in tinned fish. No, we’re not talking StarKist chicken of the sea. We’re talking high quality, gloriously preserved and packaged seafood that is popping up on bar menus worldwide. Join Jennifer for a happy hour of creative cocktails, complemented by tinned fish and seafood snacks. Cocktails include a Spiced Gin Sour (traditional gin sour with Manatawny Gin and fall spices), Martinez (made with Zimbro, MSW’s port barrel aged gin), Old Fashioned (made with MSW’s signature Keystone Whiskey) and a seasonal release Maple Whiskey, served neat or on the rocks. Snacks include sardines in olive oil with pork fat fried potato chips; mussels in garlic broth with hot sauce; razor clams in brine with chimichurri; and spicy octopus in olive oil with smoked Maldon and paprika.
