Factory Tour: Whiskey Wars!

Dec 14, 2014 @ 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm

In the 19th century, Marines were dispatched from the Navy Yard to crack down on illegal whiskey distilling in what became known as the WHISKEY WARS. Today, Kings County Distillery is proudly making moonshine and more on premises. Join BLDG 92 and Kings County Distillery on a tour (and tasting!) that explores whiskey scandals of the past and the resurgence of the industry today.

Factory Tours Overview. BLDG 92’s Factory Tours offer the public a chance to experience industry in action through exposure to the diversity of active factories and manufacturers on the Yard. Factory Tours explore the Yard’s development today as a model of sustainable urban industry, and give visitors a unique opportunity to witness first-hand the resurgence of new and traditional manufacturing. Stay tuned for upcoming tours; Counter Culture, Making Wood Work and Heavy Metal.
