Worth the trip across from Manhattan. Great guided tour of the distillery. Moonshine and Bourbon tasting at the end.

Awesome urban distillery in a cool part of Brooklyn - the navy yard! Actually left knowing far more about bourbon than I started off with, and enjoyed getting to support a small operation. The tour guide was extremely open to answering any questions, helping taste...More

Really interesting with great detail in the history of the area, the product, and alcohol in the US in general. Very cool location and excellent tour guide! Definitely stop by the Gate Houses for a drink afterwards.

A fun sunday adventure with lots of historical perspective. I've been to the bar before but didn't realize a tour is offered. Even for a local it was very informative.

Usually people come to NY and only a few come to Brooklyn, and people don’t know what they’re missing! The distillery tour is super cool, tells a little but of the history from the neighborhood, simply loved!

A fun and educational tour even if you're not a whisky fan. Our tour guide was so entertaining, and the tour ended with samples of the product. Well worth the trip and take some product home for later!
