In 2012, just after Pennsylvania had passed it’s new limited distillery law; Bob Begg was retiring from 28 years of teaching at IUP. His teaching colleague, Bob Sechrist, had been in love with wine and wine making for years. So, he approached his friend and together, in moment of madness, decided to start a distillery. Inspired by their own virtues and those of whom they admire, the two decided to name the business Disobedient Spirits. A site was soon chosen. A vacant and derelict grocery store in Homer City would suit their needs. Saving only the walls that support the structure, the renovations to transform the property into a contemporary distillery were extensive. The two Bobs got approval in May of 2013 and started the year long process of installing equipment, experimenting with recipes, and producing enough product to open for business. On December 13, 2014 the doors opened and the adventure was underway.
