Distillery in Ambler to be named Widows Peak Distilling

In July of 2020, AroundAmbler.com reported that a distillery was in the works for the space at 10 East Butler Pike in downtown Ambler.

A banner recently went up on the front of the building announcing that an unnamed business is “coming soon” and encourages you to scan a QR code to learn more.

The QR code takes you to the website of Widows Peak Distilling. When we first reported on it, the name of the premises was to be Declaration Distilling.

The lower end of Butler Avenue is currently undergoing a lot of dining and nightlife changes. Butler Avenue stalwart KC’s Alley was recently renovated. Ambler Vegan Company and Backyard Beans opened in the last 12 months. Forest & Main Brewing opened a new pub in the former skate shop at 33 Butler Avenue on November 9th. Harry’s Taproom in Blue Bell also was recently approved to move to 1 West Butler Avenue.

The owners of the distillery are Mark and Michael Ilg. We have reached out to learn more.
