Chocolate Whiskey

MADE BY KINGS COUNTY DISTILLERY IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

PONCHO SAYS...

"I can’t eat chocolate, but you can...and also drink chocolate whiskey. One of us here is clearly the winner."


MOUTH SAYS...

Cacao husks leftover from Mast Brothers chocolate-making, steeped in Kings County moonshine – talk about an awesome Brooklyn duo! The moonshine brings a subtle sweetness to the earthy bitterness and rich flavor of the cacao. The combination is amazing, and there's no added sugar, so it's not overly sweet. Plus, it comes in a super-cool glass flask.

This whiskey is great with dessert, but we also love trying it out in more traditional cocktails. It's just the kind of creative spirit we'd expect from Kings County, which just happened to be New York State's first legal distillery since Prohibition when it opened back in 2010. 

tip of the tongue

Try this one out in a chocolate old fashioned: Muddle 1 teaspoon sugar with 2-4 dashes aromatic bitters. Add ice (preferably one large cube), then pour in 2 oz Chocolate Whiskey. Garnish with a lemon twist or a Mess Hall Cocktail Cherry.

  • $25 for a 200ml flask
