Event Details

distill-event

 
Green-Wood is teaming with our friends at Kings County Distillery to delve into the past and present of distilling, Brooklyn style. The afternoon kicks off with a trolley tour of the cemetery's permanent residents with whiskey connections, including the only casualty in the contentious Whiskey Wars of the mid-1800s. Afterward, the trolley will head to Kings County Distillery in the Brooklyn Navy Yard to explore how whiskey is made and enjoy a tasting of four of their of their delectable products (which they have been producing since 2010).
 
This tour is based upon the newly published book "Dead Distillers: A History of the Upstarts and Outlaws who Made American Spirits" by Colin Spoelman, co-founder and Master Distiller at Kings County Distillery. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the distillery.
 
Limited to 30 persons. This event is strictly 21+; I.D. required. This tour begins promptly at 3:30PM, no late admission allowed.
 
$35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$40 for non-members.
