The oldest running distillery since Prohibition Era is just 7 years as I write this post ! This is the Kings County Distillery.
As the sun was setting in a vast purple and pink sky, i finally made it to the Navy Yards where the Distillery is located since 2012. I’ve been welcomed by Lia, a Bourbon sommelier who started the conversation with many stories about whiskey tax, bourbon or booze war.
Do you for example know when and where did the first distillery ever registered in what is now the USA ?
Dear curious reader,
Opening the ball of the urban distilleries report series is the VAN BRUNT STILLHOUSE, based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It is surprisingly easy to find the distillery in this hard to reach by public transport area : it is just behind Ikea. Should you not have a car : take the Ikea shuttle, not only will you have the chance to see the Statue of Liberty one more time but you will be brought very close to you real destination.
