Kings County Peated Rye Batch 3 is crafted from 80% New York Danko rye and 20% Scottish peated malted barley, which sends this rye whiskey into new, strange, and beautiful territories. Aged for 2 years in new American oak barrels, this spectacular and unique expression qualifies as an Empire Rye and brings the same rich spice along with a buttery balance of savory and sweet flavors. Bottled at 90 proof, this memorable rye brings you notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, maple, and mint with a finish of warm bread and holiday spice.

Kings County Peated Rye Batch 3 was awarded a Gold medal and an Innovation Award at the 2020 American Craft Spirits Association Awards.

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.
