Kings County Straight Empire Rye Whiskey
This Kings County Empire Rye whiskey is made from 80% New York grown Danko rye and 20% English barley malt.
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, moonshine, and now single malt whiskey out of the 117-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. Part of a broader project with other New York distillers, Kings County Empire Rye whiskey is made from 80% New York grown Danko rye and 20% english barley malt and is aged 2 years in charred oak barrels. With notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, maple, mint, and cut grass with a finish of warm bread and holiday spice, this is a more flavorful rye than some of its commercial peers. Released at 102 proof, this is a potent entry into a much-loved category. Pick up your bottle today!
