MCC: The History of Distilling in New York City @ Astor Center
The History of Distilling in New York City with Allen Katz & Tom Potter
Not often thought of as a hotbed for commercial distilling, the history of producing alcoholic spirits in New York City stretches as far back to its first days as New Amsterdam. From moonshine, to rum and gin, today’s outer-boroughs were key locales for craft distilling from the Tammany-era of the 19th Century up until Prohibition. Join Allen Katz and Tom Potter on an historical journey that traces the path of distilling in our great city, from its earliest days to the modern revival of craft distilling in Brooklyn.
