Kings County Distillery is a distillery located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, producing corn whiskey and bourbon whiskey.


Kings County Distillery was founded by Colin Spoelman and David Haskell in 2009, spurred by changes in New York State law regarding the licensing of microdistilleries.[1] It officially began production out of its 330 square feet (31 m2) warehouse[1] in April 2010.[2]
