Kings County Distillery

Kings County Distillery Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since prohibition. Founded in 2010, Kings County makes handmade moonshine and bourbon out of the 113-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The distillery uses New York grain and traditional distilling equipment to make distinctive whiskey. Our moonshine won “Best in Category” for corn whiskey at the 2011 American Distilling Institute’s Craft Spirits Conference and Kings County won silver medals for both whiskies at the 2013 Conference.

Please enter the Navy Yard through the Sands Street Gate. Our “address” on Flushing is misleading—and Google may direct you to an empty lot on Flushing; Kings County Distillery is the first building past the gate at Sands St. and Navy St. Closest subways are AC at High St. and the F at York.
