Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since prohibition. Founded in 2010, Kings County makes handmade moonshine and bourbon out of the 118-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The distillery uses New York grain and traditional distilling equipment to make distinctive whiskey. Our whiskeys have won numerous best-in-category, gold, and double-gold medals and was named Distillery of the Year in 2016 by the American Distilling Institute.
