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.

DIRECTIONS

Please enter the Navy Yard through the Sands Street Gate, at the corner of Sands Street and Navy Street. (Our “address” on Flushing is misleading—and GPS/smartphones may erroneously lead to an empty lot.) Kings County Distillery is the first building past the gate. Be prepared to show ID to enter the Navy Yard. Closest subways are A/C at High Street and the F at York Street.

  • Came for a Saturday tour ($16), and it was one of the best alcohol tours I’ve attended. The tour director Leah was fantastic. Super knowledgeable and engaging - enthusiastic and patient with all our questions. She really knew the history and whiskey making process well. And the whiskeys we got to try were all super tasty. Highly recommend!
  • This place is great! Came with my dad on Father’s Day, there is a sweet little bar at the front where you can drink the whisky and other things before and after the tour. The vibe is pretty cool, almost medieval meets Brooklyn. Highly recommend - the awesome whisky they make is just icing on top of the cake!
  • Great experience! Spirits were truly incredible from the flights to the mixed drinks. They know how to make whiskey! And the staff was very knowledgable and kind, and made the trip that much more worth it. 10 out of 10, stop by kings county distillery👌
  • I think the tour can be way shorter, 30 mins max. Standing there and listening to all those history and whisky techniques for more than a hour was very tiring. It left us no time to visit the bar at all, what a pity! Also the tasting could be more generous, should have let us taste all flavors instead of asking us to choose.
  • Had a great time at our tour and tasting today! Kelly was an awesome tour guide and taught us a ton! Loved all the bourbons we tried!!
