There’s no better way to describe Barrow’s Intense Ginger Distillery than the phrase fun time. The ginger is just one of the differentiating characteristics of this Brooklyn gem. Barrow’s is all about pure ginger flavor, unfettered by heat or filtration processes. Named for the street on which it was born, this distillery houses more than 160 NYC spirits. Tastings are inside Sunset Park’s Industry City campus, where you can grab a seat at the bar or a seat in front of the fire pit in the private courtyard with a craft cocktail in your hand. Barrow’s is a place of personality, so if you’re going to plunge into ginger wonderland, be prepared for live music, tarot readings, and comedy shows. Every Friday on Jukanbaila Salsa Night, DJ Gagou takes the aux as guests dance under the stars to salsa, bachata, and more.
