Factory Tour: Whiskey Wars!

Mar 16, 2014 @ 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm

| $15.00
KCD.Exhibit.2

Tension boils between government and surrounding neighborhood. Illicit distilleries are being shut down.

“Whiskey pours through the streets with one drop of blood…”

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.

Tours last approximately 90 minutes and start and end at BLDG 92. Part of this tour requires climbing stairs. If you are interested in coming and have questions about accessibility, please call us for further information. Participants must be at least 21 years of age.
