Brooklyn Bakery Kings County Distillery New York Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Hey, I’m Bakin’ Here!
Kings County Distillery, the oldest distillery in New York City, creates some of the country’s most acclaimed and sought-after whiskies. The distillery brings together American and European distilling traditions and uses New York-grown grains to make whiskies that embody the essence and energy of the country’s largest city.
This is a marriage of eight different barrels of 5 and 6 year old Kings County bourbons that come together to create a powerful, sweet, and spicy straight bourbon. It has rich dark chocolate notes, with hints of pecan pie, graham cracker, blackberry cobbler, and cherry tart. It reminds us of a Brooklyn bakery on a cold winter morning… and we would know, because we used to spend a lot of time in them!
