About Kings County Honey Moonshine Whiskey
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.
This Honey Moonshine is Kings County moonshine infused approximately six months with full honeycomb frames from Brooklyn Grange, a rooftop farm, and neighbors to the distillery in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The honey infusion is made entirely with NYC-residing bees, whose honey, wax, and propolis all contribute to the full honeycomb flavor of the un-oaked whiskey. The whiskey is bottled unfiltered with residue from the honeycomb.
