From the start of Prohibition until 2021, there was no legal whiskey distillery in Manhattan. When Great Jones Distilling Co. opened in NoHo, it was the first and only legal whiskey distillery to open in Manhattan in over 100 years. Their whiskeys are truly homegrown, using 100% New York-sourced ingredients. You can sample their spirits yourself on our upcoming VIP tour and tasting on December 7th!

Along with the guided tasting experience, guests will go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the distillery to learn how Great Jones’ whiskeys are made. As you walk past the shiny copper stills, giant stainless steel vats, and winding network of pipes, you’ll discover how unique locally sourced ingredients transform into high-quality spirits.
