80% New York corn and 20% English barley and aged for two years or more. Smooth, spicy, and complex, this bourbon is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, and vanilla. Awarded three stars by the New York Times “Top Ten Bourbons” —Time Out New York, 2014
“Crisp Demerara sugar; sumptuous texture, aided by melt-in-the-mouth natural caramels; an excellent outpouring of citrus-tinged vanilla; for a year-old bourbon the sugars have accumulated charmingly (89=excellent).” – Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2013
“Exotic and deep, with flavors of grain, liquorice, vanilla and molasses.” (#2 Craft Bourbon, 3-Stars) — Eric Asimov, New York Times 2014.

About the producer
Making Whiskey From Grain To Bottle
Kings County Distillery is New York City’s premier craft distillery and among the most acclaimed small distilleries in the United States. Focused exclusively on whiskeys, Kings County has made a name for its bourbon, moonshine, and other creative whiskeys. We only distil whiskey for our label and we never sell whiskey made from any other source. All the corn is 100% organic, and we don’t use GMO ingredients.
“We began by making whiskey at home. This gave us a chance to learn for ourselves what makes good whiskey—in some cases our answers confirmed conventional wisdom, but more often they turned it on its head. As a result, our whiskey is idiosyncratic; its taste reflects our values. We believe whiskey making is more than a business: it is an historical, agricultural, political, and gastronomical act. And it should be good fun.” —Colin Spoelman, Co-Founder and Master Distiller.
