about us


Founded in 2014, County Seat Spirits is an independently owned and operated craft distillery located in the county seat of Lehigh County, Allentown, PA. Anthony Brichta, a practicing attorney and Lehigh Valley native, and John Rowe, a retired pilot and air traffic controller, took their passion for the industry and turned it into great-tasting spirits. 

In 2019, County Seat Spirits expanded with a craft cocktail bar and tasting room in Easton, PA at the historic Simon Silk Mill.
