Our Honey Moonshine, or Honeymoon Shine, if you prefer, is Kings County moonshine infused with honey from Big Dipper Apiaries, with beehives at the Naval Cemetery Landscape in the Navy Yard. The honey infusion is made entirely with Navy Yard-residing bees, whose honey, wax, and propolis all contribute to the authentic flavor of this whiskey. This whiskey has residue from the honeycomb just like real honey, and is bottled unfiltered at 40% abv. This is our answer to the syrupy honey-flavored whiskeys on the market and aims for a more sophisticated palate, with complex floral notes.
Kings County Distillery is New York City’s oldest and premier craft distillery. Founded in 2010, Kings County hand makes whiskey out of the 115-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, using New York grain and traditional distilling equipment to make distinctive spirits.
