This here's your golden ticket.
In the Brooklyn Navy Yard, on the waterfront that was once known as the distillery district, there’s a proud red-brick building that houses the first distillery in New York City since the Prohibition. And even if it’s a mere decade old, it’s actually the oldest distillery in Big Apple. They mash, ferment, distill, and bottle right there in that building, using New York grains. Practically the only thing that's imported are the Scottish copper-pot stills. In the short time that they've been operational they were named Distillery of the Year by the American Distilling Institute and have won several awards, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition included. Do we have your attention yet?
They also make a mean Moonshine! Somewhere along the way, they got the bright idea of creating the Chocolate Whiskey, based off that unaged corn goodness. They teamed up with fellow Brooklynites Raaka Chocolate, who operate from their factory in Red Hook, and infused the Moonshine with ground cacao bean husks. It's rich and bitter chocolaty goodness, propped up by the sweetness of the Moonshine.
