We don’t fully understand what goes on inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard besides unmarked buildings, security guards, and UPS trucks. OK, that last one is pretty self-explanatory. But something we are certain of is that very good whiskey is made at Kings County Distillery. They have a separate tasting room just inside the gates of the Navy Yard, and when it’s nice out, they fill their courtyard out front with picnic tables. It’s a fun spot to try flights of different whiskeys or cocktails (they make the mixers and grow the garnishes for each on-site).
