Situated along the banks of the East River, Kings County Distillery is New York City's oldest operating whiskey distillery and the first distillery in New York City since Prohibition. Wedged between Williamsburg and Vinegar Hill, Colin Spoelman and David Haskell, the master distillers at Kings County, make hand-crafted bourbon and moonshine out of the 113-year-old Paymaster Building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

A typewriter the two distillers found on the sidewalk in Williamsburg is used to make the labels that adorn their clear, flask-like bottles, while a hairdryer (made by Revlon) is used to afix each bottle seal. Handwritten scrawls on a chalkboard keep track of different batches, and mesh laundry bags are used as strainers.

Haskell and Spoelman use the first alcohol produced from each batch — the "head" — as a disinfectant and sell the used mash to a pig farmer who uses it as feed. "I still don't understand why it doesn't make the pigs drunk," Haskell says.

Kings County 6-Year Blender's Reserve Bourbon is an extra-limited, highly curated, one-off blend of some of Kings County oldest bourbon barrels. Their oldest-ever release of bourbon aged in 15-gallon casks, this superb dram was aged for at least 6 years in wood barrels, resulting in an exceptionally rich, dark and dessert-like profile. Bottled at cask proof of 140 proof, it's best to open it up with a drop of water to truly appreciate the sweet, port wine notes and a maple-like texture with flavors of cherries jubilee, brown sugar, dark chocolate and fig in the background.
