1. Tuthilltown Spirits

While Tuthilltown Spirits isn’t in Brooklyn (it’s actually in the Hudson Valley), it comes highly recommended by Untapped. The label also had its first distribution right here in Red Hook.

For a weekend trip, visit the distillery that became the first whiskey distillery in New York State when it opened in 2005. Their vodka is made from locally sourced apples and grain from the Hudson Valley. The distillery also has the distinction of being the 2015 Apple Vodka Distillery of the Year at the New York International Spirits Competition.
