Delve in to the past and present of distilling, Brooklyn style. At the stunning Pierrepont memorial in Green-Wood, you’ll learn about Hezekiah Beers Pierrepont and his early-19th century downtown Brooklyn distillery. Plus you’ll visit other permanent residents with whiskey connections, including the only casualty in the contentious Whiskey Wars of the mid-1800s.
After the tour, Green-Wood’s trolley will whisk you away 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.
$25 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$30 for nonmembers.
