Accoladed, amazing and 100% New York Straight Bourbon.

In the old paymaster building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, there’s a proud red-brick building that houses the first distillery in New York City since the Prohibition. And even if it’s under a decade old, it’s actually the oldest distillery in Big Apple. They offer insanely great expressions such as Peated Bourbon, Chocolate Whiskey, Moonshine or Winter Spice Whiskey, but one of our favorites is the no-nonsense Straight Bourbon.

It’s made from local organic corn and malted barley from the United Kingdom. The booze magicians distill it twice using copper pot stills and age it in new charred oak barrels. The rich corn aroma, sweet oak sap, and flavors of vanilla and caramel persuaded the judges at San Francisco World Spirits Competition thrice: they got Double-Gold in 2019, Gold in 2017 and Bronze in 2018. Forget beards and skinny jeans – Williamsburg is now the Gotham kingdom of Whiskey.

A typewriter the two distillers found on the sidewalk in Williamsburg is used to make the labels that adorn their clear, flask-like bottles, while a hairdryer (made by Revlon) is used to afix each bottle seal. Handwritten scrawls on a chalkboard keep track of different batches, and mesh laundry bags are used as strainers.
Kings County handcrafts all of their product out of the 119-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard just steps from legendary site of the Brooklyn Whiskey Wars of the 1860s.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
