A decade ago, we opened Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction in Old City Philadelphia. Borrowing its name from Walter Benjamin’s canonical 1936 essay, the store began as an artists’ collective, rooted in the traditions of American craftsmanship. Founder Steven Grasse developed a line of spirits in that same tradition, using recipes and ingredients drawn from the history of Pennsylvania, and the Art in the Age brand was born. As the experimental arm of his spirits-focused creative agency, Quaker City Mercantile, Art in the Age has remained at the forefront of innovation in the spirits industry.
