ABOUT FABER LIQUORS

Faber Distilling Co. is located in Quakertown, PA, and found early success by doing something no other Pennsylvania distillery has done since prohibition: deliver directly to bars and restaurantsWith a line of simple, easy-drinking liquors: vodka, rum, and gin, Faber’s direct-delivery strategy effectively cut out the middle-man, loading up their trucks each morning to reach bars in all four corners of the state. This meant that Faber could produce spirits with tried and true techniques, but charge their customers significantly less. After a whole lot of door-knocking, heavy-lifting, thousands of cases of booze, and some good old word-of-mouth, Faber began to generate a following among bartenders and their regulars. Shortly after building out this direct-delivery business, the company rolled out a line of all-natural, gluten-free flavored vodkas under the same name.

 

Then in 2016, the company had its next breakthrough by launching Faber (in 750ml bottles) at Fine Wine and Good Spirits retail stores. With strong sales out of the gate, Faber grew from 25 stores to over 400 across the state.

 

Pennsylvania is Faber’s home and they’re committed to being the best easy-drinking liquor possible, sold exclusively within the Keystone State.
