Kings County Single Malt Whiskey
Though the Kings County distillery is probably most widely known for their peated bourbon, the single malt was one of their first products. It is sophisticated and elegant, open-fermented from malted barley (with a hint of peat) sourced from both English and Scottish granaries. From there, it is twice distilled in traditional Scottish pot stills, then aged in used Bourbon barrels for up to four years.There’s that lick of smoke, toasted nuts, barnyard and roasted orange. Wrapped in honey. Based in Brooklyn. NYC, Kings County began in 2010 as the smallest commercial distillery in the country, with five 24-litre stills making Whiskey seven days a week, 16 hours a day. Why so tireless? Well, they were convinced that there was something lost after Prohibition, and they wanted to bring back the personality and pride in American whisky distilling. Quality over everything else here.
