Kings County Distillery Barrel Strength Bourbon
Age: 2 to 4-years
Mash Bill: 80/20 New York State Organic Corn/English Malt
Bottle Size: 750 ml
Kings County barrel strength straight bourbon is pulled from some of the oldest barrel stocks at the distillery. Because these barrels are stronger and richer, we decided to bottle this release at barrel strength. There will be some variation between batches. Most batches are between 115-128 proof.
This release highlights the graininess of the organic New York state corn. It has a caramel corn sweetness. It's balanced by oak and chocolatey maltiness. The proof is intense but there's a velvet mouthfeel to this whiskey.
About Kings County Distillery
Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest operating whiskey distillery, the first since Prohibition. Founded in 2010, Kings County uses New York grain and traditional distilling equipment to produce whiskey in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, just steps from the former waterfront distillery district and the legendary site of the 1860s Brooklyn Whiskey Wars. Every drop the distillery sells is made in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
