About this Event

Delve into the storied past of distilled spirits in Brooklyn with Green-Wood and our neighbors at Fort Hamilton Distillery. The afternoon kicks off with a trolley tour of the Cemetery to discover the Who’s Who of the Revolutionary War and the distillers who made their mark on the young Republic. Afterward, the trolley heads to Fort Hamilton Distillery in Industry City where you’ll experience "white" rye straight off the still, sample whiskey directly from the barrel, and learn how to bottle your own spirits! Also included will be a tasting of four whiskeys, followed by a sampling of barrel-aged maple syrup.

Fort Hamilton Distillery started barreling whiskey in 2016 when founder Alex Clark embarked on a mission to recapture America's finest spirits. Based in Industry City, Brooklyn, and steps from the Cemetery, the distillery is surrounded by landmarks of the Revolutionary War, from which the whiskey maker draws his inspiration.
