Matt and Bryan Quigley of Federal Distilling in Kensington have opened a tasting room next to the distillery, at 1700 N. Hancock St., three days a week.Federal Distilling Room – as it’s catchily named – offers Stateside Urbancraft vodka tastings, a cocktail menu, a small food menu, and tours.  It’s also open for private events.MK 2

Since its launch last December, Stateside vodka is now sold in more than 166 stores in Pennsylvania and is poured at 300-plus bars and restaurants in the area. It also was the exclusive vodka of the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

FDR’s hours are 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday, 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, and noon to 10 p.m. Saturday.
