Delve in to the past and present of distilling, Brooklyn style. At the stunning Pierrepont memorial, you’ll learn about Hezekiah Beers Pierrepont and his early-19th century downtown Brooklyn distillery, plus other permanent residents with whiskey connections, including the only casualty in the contentious Whiskey Wars of the mid-1800s.
After the tour, climb aboard Green-Wood’s trolley and head to Kings County Distillery in the Brooklyn Navy Yard! They’ve been making gin and whiskey in their historic building since 2010. You’ll see how they create their modern whiskey before tasting some of the delectable product.
$30 for members of the Historic Fund/$35 for nonmembers. Ticket price includes tour at both locations and tasting.
