We've been to plenty of distilleries, both urban and rural, and this is definitely one of the most intriguing given the history of distilling in the area and the historic architecture. The liquid doesn't quite have the provenance of some of the distillers in operation...More

Great tour and excellent bourbons & moonshines. Really enjoyed this tour, the staff knew their stuff and the tasting at the end was really good. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting New york/Brooklyn.. even if you don't like bourbon.
