HIGHFALOUTIN AND HAND-MADE IN NEW YORK—BECAUSE GIN PEOPLE ARE A LITTLE MORE SOPHISTICATED THAN THE REST OF US.
A fresh take on gin—Brooklyn Gin uses 100% fresh citrus peels and hand-cracked juniper. By hand-cutting the citrus fruit, and releasing the essential oils in the juniper berries, they make a more vibrant gin than the distillers who use frozen or dried citrus peels.
"We believe in the American tradition of the cocktail hour."
Our small company got its start in the wake of the financial crisis. At that time, due to our available resources, we were unable to build our own distillery. We were lucky to find a remarkable partner just outside the city in the Hudson Valley to help bring our vision of a handmade, small-batch American gin to life. We craft and bottle Brooklyn Gin at the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery in Warwick, New York.
It is our greatest dream to build our own distillery in Brooklyn, and the realization of that dream is closer than ever.
Unlike mass-produced factory gins, we do everything by hand. It takes more time and effort, but we believe you can taste it in your very first sip. We use one Christian Carl copper pot still. Each batch yields 300 bottles of gin and our process takes three days. We distill Brooklyn Gin using locally purchased fruit and a base spirit made from 100% American corn that is sourced from small farms.
