It was my first time to learn American whiskey’s history. After tasting, I came to like American whiskey even more. Thank you!
Fun tour, great tasting, helpful guide, but the talk at the beginning could use some visual aids during the history part. Otherwise great!
Our guide was brilliant. He told the story of the distillery with great humour and had plenty of interesting facts at his fingertips. The only slight negative was that it was quite distracting being given the overview of the distillery whilst the tasting was going on in the shop bit. The noise spilled over quite a lot. That aside there wasn’t anything else I would’ve changed, it was a really enjoyable tour.
The tour was very informative and the whisky - delicious.
Our tour guide was phenomenal, very informative and very personable. For anyone who is interested in learning more about this distillery and the process of making bourbon, this is by far one of the best tours I have ever done. Totally worth the money!
Tour guide was extremely informative especially about the history of whiskey distillation.
It was a great way to spend an afternoon. Although we did get charged twice for tickets by accident
The guide was so knowledgeable and it was way more in depth than I was expecting. I also didn’t realize there was a tasting at the end! I’ve already recommended this to my friends.
Tour was great and the peaty bourbon was the best
Cool history, tasty whiskey, distillery cat Jeffy = 5 stars
Plenty of time for questions. Honest answers and transparency; perfect for a whisky geek.
Overall great tour! Just wish we had more of a warning when we sat down / ordered drinks that we'd only have 20 min to sip our cocktails. (We were under the impression we'd be able to carry out with us).
Tour was nicely done and informative. Also enjoyed the book (The Kings County Distillery Guide). Like the irony of your distillery being in the Navy Yards. Also liked your "peated bourbon" and plan to share my sampler with some friends who are hard core scotch drinkers. Your bourbon is good but hard to beat my go to choice... Woodford Reserve. Frankly, I was surprised to learn how many of the top shelf brands are blended, sourced spirits and the take-away from both the book and the tour is that Kings County is dedicated to top quality craft distilling. I will be back next time I visit Dumbo.
Very informative tour. Great tour guide. Wonderful experience!
The tour was just the right length, and the guide (Jen) was engaging and knowledgable. We had a wonderful time!
Le guide était parfais Dommage que je n'ai pas tout compris. Une traduction aurait été un plus
I found it fascinating to learn the history and to see the inner workings of the whiskey I have come to love. The tour guide and the bartender were fabulous!!
I recently heard Colin speak at Flavorcon and was intrigued, so I brought some friends to the tour. We really enjoyed it! Our Guide was very well informed and the history is so interesting. I would have liked to see more about the process. The tasting was great too. I especially loved your nice bar and cocktails afterward! Great ambiance and loved the music too! I will definitely recommend to others. Donna
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, the spirits are delicious. I will be back with friends!
Loved hearing more about the history of distilling in NYC and the rest of the country. Our guide was super knowledgeable and engaging, we had a great time!
A bit in a rush, but good story telling. I learned new things, had fun and found myself in good company. I recommend tasting one of their special cocktails after the tour in the bar.
Very enjoyable especially the tasting. Y’all have a great thing going, best wishes!
Entertaining look at the process. I would have been interested in learning more about your supply chains (more detail there, and less detail on Prohibition), but it was fun, thank you!

The information on the tour was great. I prefer to move my body a bit more from fact to fact, but I get it is a small space! A little hipster-y for me. The chocolate flavor was bomb though.
I loved the tour not only included the facility, but also spoke about the history of distilling in NYC and America at large.
Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Tasting session was great and overall atmosphere was inviting and fun.
