EXPLORE THE HISTORY OF WHISKEY IN BROOKLYN AT GREEN-WOOD AND KINGS COUNTY DISTILLERY
November 9, 2019 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM$35 – $40
The Green-Wood Cemetery and Kings County Distillery are teaming up once again to share the tales of the lurid and storied past of distilling whiskey in Brooklyn.
The afternoon kicks off with a trolley tour exploring this history 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 for a discussion of how whiskey is made where guests will be treated to a tasting of their specially crafted products.
Participants must be 21 or older. I.D. is required.
$40; $35 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended. If the event is not sold out, walk-ups will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
