Kings County Distillery

Colin Spoelman started “unlawfully” distilling at home as a hobby. In 2010, he partnered with David Haskell to open the first legal whiskey distillery in New York City since Prohibition, while still working part-time in at an architectural firm. Although they started as the smallest distillery in the country, they’re now in a beautiful space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where they even have enough space to grow a small amount of grain.
