Kings County Whiskey Collection Gift BoxMADE BY KINGS COUNTY DISTILLERY IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
So, once upon a time, New York City 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. They settled into the Brooklyn Navy Yard (not far from Mouth HQ) where they're making awesome spirits bottled in retro flasks, that are literally a taste of New York's past.
This wooden gift box features an etching of the distillery, which was actually the paymaster's office for the Navy Yard when it was up and running! Inside the box, you'll find Kings County's bourbon, moonshine, and chocolate whiskey. There's also a peated bourbon and their seasonal spiced whiskey.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Kings County makes a great gift for lovers of Prohibition-era history, but if you're feeling a little, well, like self-gifting after taking care of someone else with this box, pick up a flask of the Chocolate Bourbon. Cacao husks leftover from Mast Brothers chocolate-making are steeped in Kings County moonshine for an amazing combination. This whiskey is great with dessert, but we also love trying it out in more traditional cocktails.
