Welcome to the Whiskey candy shop…

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. Today, the distillery’s Spirits lineup also includes two types of Rey Whiskeys.

Mister Katz grew up on the B&O railroad, spitting distance from the old Hannisville Distillery. In the days, before Prohibition there was all manner of entertainment to keep a young man’s fancy: the ponies, chewing tobacco, malts at the drugstore, and an evening’s treat of Rock & Rye

This American classic Rock & Rye could once be found on the back bar of most noteworthy establishments. Marrying a youthful Rye Whiskey and rock candy sugar with sour cherries, cinnamon, and a wisp of citrus.

Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
During Prohibition there were over 50,000 illicit stills in New York City.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
