In the spirit of farm-to-table cuisine, Brooklyners are now discovering distillery-to-glass imbibing, taking advantage of the explosion of local entrepreneurs plying their wares in local stores and speakeasies. Here are some Kings County spirits worth sampling.

Breuckelen Distilling (Park Slope) began distilling gin and whiskey in 2010 and has quickly catapulted to the top of many lists of new distillers. The distillery mostly uses organic grains from a farm near Newfield, New York. Rosemary, lemon, ginger, and grapefruit accompany the juniper berries in the distillery’s Glorious Gin.
