Colin Spoelman and David Haskell at Kings County Distillery
The men behind the revitalization of New York City’s oldest whiskey distillery produce artisanal whiskey, bourbon and moonshine in small, plainly labeled bottles. And their hand-crafted grain alcohol tastes as mellow as its packaging, surprisingly sweet for a white whiskey. Bars and liquor stores across Brooklyn and parts of Manhattan have begun to carry the Kings County brand, so make sure to order a White Manhattan next time you swing by Marlow & Sons. And don’t fret about northern interlopers messing with the holy water of the south—Spoelman’s from no less a whiskey mecca than eastern Kentucky (even if all the ingredients are sourced in New York state and the distillery is in Bushwick).
