Van Brunt Stillhouse Opens Distillery In Red Hook
Featuring First Small-Batch Rum In NYC Since Prohibition Era
RED HOOK — A new distillery is in operation in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Van Brunt Stillhouse is offering artisanal distilled spirits to New York City. Located near the Red Hook waterfront, Van Brunt Stillhouse is hand-crafting New York’s first homemade rum since prohibition.
Artisanal distilling is growing across America, and New York City has joined the trend. Van Brunt Stillhouse’s small-batch approach will deliver high-quality spirits to New Yorkers, adding to the already burgeoning local craft resurgence in Brooklyn.
In addition to rum, Van Brunt Stillhouse looks forward to rolling out a full line of spirits: moonshine, a Red Hook whiskey and an old-fashioned gin as well as seasonal offerings made from local farm products.
