Our Story

Kishor’s story began in Dar-es-Salaam, where he and his family spent Sundays doing charitable work among underprivileged communities. This first-hand awareness of the value of opportunity, along with his natural curiosity, led him to explore medicine, business, and aviation, obtaining his MD, MBA and pilot’s license. His varied career has found him running distillation and purification facilities, as well as an edible oil production venture. At Kilimanjaro Distillery, he comes full circle, using his love of science to carefully craft small batch spirits in Allentown, where the distillery helps diversify and revitalize the local economy. Niky’s journey has been fueled by a passion for bringing together people of diverse backgrounds to make the world a richer place.She’s explored the nature of connection and collaboration, and its power to drive meaningful change. Her work has led her around the globe and across disciplines, with contributions in global health and social entrepreneurship.

Because she knows that every choice we make impacts people and the environment everywhere, a percentage of all profits from Xplorer Spirits is used to provide clean drinking water to communities in need through the Tanzania Water Project and to the local Meals on Wheels Pennsylvania community. The Chokshi family believes everyone’s life is a unique journey to be savored through genuine experiences and meaningful connections.
Xplorer Spirits is our tribute to fellow adventurers. Our grain to glass process uses locally grown potatoes and high-quality grains that honor Pennsylvania’s agricultural heritage. Our spirits are distilled to a high level of purity, ensuring a great experience in the glass. Everything we do is infused with a spirit of discovery and a commitment to creating the finest spirits the world can offer, to be enjoyed with good friends, wherever life takes you.

Had a great outing today with a couple friends to Xplorer spirits. The owner gave an excellent tour and he & his wife were very hospitable and offered samples of their product. I would highly recommend to check this place out! Great product & great service!

What a great outing for a Saturday! We treated two friends to a tour of Kilimanjaro Distillery with a tasting bar at the end. Kishor has a bright mind for his craft and a generous, African "karibu" welcoming heart. It happens that my wife and I lived in Tanzania as kids, so we even chatted a bit in Swahili. He's the real deal. The small batch vodkas and Apple Pie Moonshine were delightful. We'll try the gin next time and hope to meet his wife and daughter then. This is an unsolicited review from a retired guy who enjoyed taking his wife on a fun date. We'll be back often.

It was very cool to see the whole process on a personal tour. Kishor, the owner, was very knowledgeable and passionate. The bottles' designs are incredible, almost as amazing as the contents inside! The tour and tasting were wonderful as well as the new products!
