About Kings County Five Bottle Whiskey Gift SetSituated 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 affix 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.
This gift set contains five King County expressions, the 200ml bottles tucked neatly into a wooden box. You'll find their Moonshine, Straight Bourbon, Peated Bourbon, Chocolate Bourbon, and Spiced Whiskey inside. The set takes you on a true journey through New York's premier craft distillery, starting with the unaged and bright Moonshine, going over more familiar ground with the Straight Bourbon, continuing with the Peated Bourbon that employs Scottish peated malt, and ending with the experimental Chocolate whiskey, infused with ground cacao husks, and the seasonal Spiced Whiskey.

About American Whiskey
There's equally strictly regulated American single malt, made from 100% malted barley, Tennessee whiskey, essentially bourbon filtered through maple charcoal and aged in new charred oak barrels.
And then there's moonshine, a high proof (150- 170 proof) distilled spirit mainly made out of corn which gained popularity during the prohibition.
Straight Bourbon: A rich aroma of fresh corn, balanced with the sweet caramelized oak sap from small barrels. It has a very strong sweet base with flavors of vanilla and caramel, a deep molasses taste to the middle notes, and leaves a smooth finish with hints of cinnamon and autumn spices.
Peated Bourbon: Kings County Distiller Peated Bourbon is a scotch-like bourbon, flavorful and robust from having aged in a new barrel, with an added light smoky finish reminiscent of single-malt. If scotch and bourbon had a baby, this is what it would taste like.
Chocolate Whiskey: Kings County Distillery Chocolate Whiskey is bitter and surprising. This rich whiskey tastes like dark chocolate and works well in cocktails or on its own as a digestif or dessert whiskey.
Spiced Whiskey: You can expect plenty of baking spice notes in this festive infused whiskey with cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, clove, black peppercorns, and star anise.
