Kings County Distillery Reviews
Leah is a phenomenal tour guide and I truly can’t recommend this tour enough. What a great place! I absolutely love the craft and care that goes into the drinks at the gatehouse. more »
I ordered tickets online before my visit. Our informative and witty guide led us on a brisk walk through the "vintage" buildings and distillery. The tour ends with a tasting. You can purchase T-shirts... more »
This is a wonderful gem in Brooklyn! The tour was fantastic - our guide was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. The tasting at the end was a good touch, as we sampled their main lineup as well as some special whiskies. I do wish that we were able to walk around in the main room to see the stills up close. And if they had offered a little discount on gift shop merchandise at the end, I would have bought something!
Great tour with some dad jokes sprinkled in there to keep us entertained. They repurposed the old buildings and kept much of the old architectural elements which made the distillery, barrel room & taproom super unique. Going down to the restroom in the taphouse, you'll get a taste of the old architecture by going down the spiral staircase column.
