[VIDEO] Take a Tour of Kings County Distillery, the Oldest Whiskey Distillery in Brooklyn

Kings County Distillery only started making whisky in 2010, but it is the oldest operating distillery in New York City, the first to reemerge in the City since the Prohibition era. In this video from StreetEasy, learn all about how Kings County Distillery opened.

Originally the distillery operated out of a tiny, 325-square foot room in East Williamsburg and claimed the title as the country’s smallest commercial distillery. In 2012, Kings County Distillery moved to the Brooklyn Navy Yards where it now occupies the 100-year old Paymaster Building, which was where naval officers went to collect their paychecks.
