Kings County BourbonMADE BY KINGS COUNTY DISTILLERY IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
This is a taste of New York history, bottled in a retro flask that we're totally obsessing over.
So, once upon a time, NYC was a hub of distilling. Then Prohibition happened (boo!), and even after alcohol was once again legal, it took New York State a long, long time to re-legalize distilling (yay!).
The folks at Kings County didn't miss a beat – they were really the first to bring spirits-making back to the city. Now settled into their new home in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, not far from our Mouth HQ, they're making an awesome Bourbon from local corn with some malted Scottish barley that reminds us, oddly enough, of fresh-baked pastry.
