Factory Tour: Whiskey Wars! (Valentine’s Day)
Feb 14, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm| $15.00
As the song goes – “Love is a Battlefield” and in the 19th century, the love of whiskey led to the Marines being 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.
Bring your dearest on this tour and share a sip of chocolate whiskey – a spirit as unique, amusing and heartwarming as your love.
