Brooklyn Gin is an homage to the Brooklyn Distilling Company first founded in 1895 but closed shortly thereafter. It was founded anew by Angel "Joe" Santos, who has partnered with Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery to make the best gin possible. In his own words,
"I cut, pulp, and peel all of my citrus fruits. I crack open my juniper berries by hand. After we distill, we fill, cork, and label the bottles by hand. I go door-to-door to local bars and liquor stores to sample my gin and hand deliver every bottle."
The gin itself is a traditional London Dry style featuring juniper with heavy notes of citrus.
