Brooklyn, New York
Brothers Steven and Philip DeAngelo opened the gin distillery in 2012 and have quickly made a name for themselves in the American craft gin industry, likely because of their "vacuum distillation," which removes air pressure from the sill during distillation and allows the gin to be distilled at low temperatures so delicate aromas aren't burned off.
“I particularly like Greenhook Ginsmiths and Dorothy Parker, both making gins in Brooklyn,” says Wagner. “The Last Emperor (cocktail at Fung Tu) is made with Greenhook Ginsmiths Beach Plum, Luxardo, green chartreuse, lime.”
It uses local, sustainable ingredients to make gin, vodka, whiskey, and even coffee liqueur. “Superb London dry-style gin, the best coffee liqueur I’ve tasted,” says Phillips.
