Kings County Distillery, New York City

The Kings County Distillery Tasting Room is now located in the castle-like gatehouse at the Sands & Navy entrance to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. With an enchanting garden and restored interior to enjoy handcrafted whiskey, it is quickly becoming the most exciting new bar in Brooklyn.

Whiskey distilled on site is served in flights, cocktails, and for retail by the bottle. Small bites provided by Coolhaus, Ovenly, & Stinkys.

A rotating cast of chef pairings and pop-ups as well as special events make the tasting room the perfect place to unwind or celebrate.

Follow us here and on Instagram @kcdtastingroom.

Enter the Navy Yard at 299 Sands Street, Brooklyn NY. First building inside the yard.

Also available other days of the week for private events. Email events@kingscountydistillery.com with inquiries.

  • 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.
