Kings County Distillery
Moonshining and micro-distilleries are fast becoming the new coffee roasters and microbreweries of today. One of these micro-distilleries is the New York based, Kings County Distillery.
These guys are NYC’s first legal whiskey operation since Prohibition. Paying homage to the co-founders’ bootlegging forefathers, they cook up organic New York corn (plus a touch of malted Scottish barley) in five, 10-gallon pot stills. Their base of operations is a 325 sqft. Brooklyn loft. In true do-it-yourself fashion, Kings County Distillery keeps it simple, from the stock bottles to the minimal labels. Proving once again, that less truly is more, and appropriately selling it in flask-shaped bottles ideal for carrying on your hip(ster).
Long live the King.
