The Brooklyn Distilling Company was established in 1895 for the purpose of manufacturing spirits from molasses and the waste products of the sugar industry, but was closed in the early 1900s and disappeared from the public eye. However, the company has recently been revived and is now producing Brooklyn Gin - their first product in over 100 years.
Produced at Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery, New York's first licensed distillery
since Prohibition, Brooklyn Gin
is distilled from grain and infused with hand-cracked juniper berries, freshly cut citrus peels and other locally sourced botanicals. Crisp, clean and balanced, Brooklyn offers bright fruit notes supported by a bold juniper backbone which lingers through the smooth, dry finish.
With hand peeled and hand cracked juniper, this is a rich and lively Gin. The juniper is fresh with a rich pine dullness that is set off perfectly alongside the tangy, sweet citrus peels. This gin is wonderfully smooth and easy going while at the same time rich and flavoursome. The hand made nature of the drink really adds to the taste.
