Kings County Single Barrel 7 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey

This expression marks an important occasion for Kings County and craft distilleries in general. The single barrel has spent 7 years in a greenhouse-like aging room, resulting in a mature and oaky bourbon with classic barrel, spice, toffee, and peanut notes.

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 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.

Kings County Single Barrel 7 Year Old was distilled in 2013 and matured in a greenhouse-like aging room at the distillery. It marks an important milestone for the craft distillery, being the oldest age-statement single-barrel expression at the time of its release. Its extended aging means that 34% of the barrel (no. 1198) was lost to evaporation. Bottled at 107 proof, it features a traditional bourbon profile with barrel, spice, toffee, and peanut notes. It has won a Gold Medal at the 2021 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
