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.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
