NY Distilling Co. DistilleryNY Distilling Co. Distillery

Founded in 2011
The NY Distilling Co. is situated in a 5,000 square foot warehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. One of many distilleries in the borough, NY Distilling Co. is the only one with a licensed bar attached to it. Launched by cocktail historian Allan Katz and the founder of the Brooklyn Brewery Tom Potter, the NY Distilling Co. was set up with a vision of creating a great Gin.

They wanted to create something different; something that wasn’t on the market yet. During their research and development process, however, the founders decided there were two different recipes they wanted to take forward; Dorothy Parker American Gin and Perry’s Tot Navy Strength.

Today, the distillery’s Spirits lineup also includes a New Netherland Gin (a Gin made from an American Rye Whiskey base), a Ragtime Rye Whiskey, and Rock & Rye (a Rye Whiskey with the added rock candy sugar, spices, and fruit).

*PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent developements with COVID virus, tours for this distillery have been canceled untill further notice.

Video transcription
Man 1: I like making things. I love making stuff and making delicious is Alcohol is like the most fun thing you can do.

Man 2: The perfect Cocktail, I've always thought that sort of the place and time is a big part of it, who you're with.

Man 1: Especially the time part, and the next Cocktail is usually the best one.

Man 2: I think when people say, "Oh, well, why waste good Spirits in a Cocktail?" They're not really thinking about a Cocktail, they're thinking about like, Jack and Coke.

Man 1: I feel like... I love going to a bar. You get to have a Cocktail that you can't make at home.

Man 2: Well that's why you go to a bar. Why would you go to an Italian restaurant and just get spaghetti with tomato sauce? You can make that at home.

Man 3: That's awesome. Man 1: Making Spirits for Cocktails and the attitude of making sure the things we make work well in drinks, I feel like, all right. If that's what I'm doing with my life, good enough.

Man 2: And that's right, hang my hat on that.

Man 1: Yeah.

Man 2: Hey, way to down that.
