Can the NYC Steakhouse Survive?
The Noble Experiment's a tasting room and stillhouse in Bushwick hoping to bring small batch distilling back to NYC. They've got sexy tufted metal tanks and piping, and are using plenty of locally sourced ingredients to lend each batch an inherently NY flavor.
Greenhook Ginsmiths is a distillery that knows exactly what you want: tasting tours, delicious booze, and uh... the first part again.
Van Brunt's distilling some delicious stuff for you to tour/taste, every weekend. Get your friends and get rowdy!
Jack From Brooklyn is the sole distiller of Sorel, that sweet-with-a-kick liqueur that you just can't get enough of. Stop by for a tasting or just pick up a bottle from the many places it's also distributed!
Cacao Prieto is a double-whammy: with a chocolate shop AND distillery, their tours are epic and pretty delicious.
The brick-walled Shanty classes up consumption via a large white-oak-and-steel bar, an antique still, and a window overlooking the fully operational distillery's "beautiful, brand-new Christian CARL still".
