GREEN-WOOD AND KINGS COUNTY DISTILLERY EXPLORE THE HISTORY OF WHISKEY IN BROOKLYN

Posted by Santana

This popular (and always sold out) trolley tour returns in 2018. Green-Wood and Kings County Distillery team up to uncover the lurid and storied past of distilling in Brooklyn. 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 their specially crafted products. Reservations are recommended. If the event is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be 21 or older. I.D. is required.
