Breuckelen Distilling Co makes gin from organic New York grains in their Sunset Park warehouse. The spirit is entirely hand crafted from grinding the grain to blending the botanics, including juniper, ginger and rosemary. More information is available at www.brkgin.com.
Kings County Distillery is New York City’s first legal whiskey distillery since prohibition. They make un-aged corn whiskey (aka moonshine) from organic New York corn and barley from Scotland in very small batches. They make 2.5 gallons of whiskey a day and are currently putting some barrels aside for a spring release. Find out more at www.kingscountydistillery.com.
