Drink Local: The Best Booze Made in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Gin


When it comes to gin, we’re firm believers that everything should feel crisp, clean, and simple, from the ingredients you mix it with (the fewer the better) to the glass it ends up in. So Brooklyn Gin’s approach makes perfect sense. There’s the straightforward moniker, sure (not to be confused with the fellow gin aficionados over at Breuckelen), but there’s also the decision to focus on one product and get it exactly right. While co-owners Emil Jattne and Joe Santos technically do their distilling upstate, they maintain that their small batch approach is consistently inspired by the hyper-local Brooklyn ethos, sourcing ingredients from New York farms and making sure that every bottle is handmade, right down to hand-cracked juniper berries. With its crisp, citrusy kick (their recipe includes lemon, lime, orange, and kumquat) and rightful place on a growing list of cocktail menus (Brooklyn Star and Northeast Kingdom are among their fans), we expect to see—and of course, drink—quite a bit of this come summer.
