New York Distilling Co launched on December 5th 2011, the 78th anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal in America. The distillery produces high-quality American gins and rye whiskeys.
Our spirits are purposefully different.
Tom Potter, the co-founder of the Brooklyn Brewery in 1987, returned to the drinks world after a short break in 2008 with plans to start the New York Distilling Company with cocktail and spirit expert Allen Katz. They are on a mission to bring back the spirit of distilling that New York City lost and never truly regained since Prohibition ended all those years ago.

Mister Katz's - It marries our youthful rye whiskey and rock candy sugar with sour cherries, cinnamon, and a wisp of citrus.
Ragtime Rye - bold, slightly spicy and full of warm flavour.
Ragtime Rye Bottled in Bond - this expression of their flagship Rye hints at tropical notes with plum aromas and a delicious Crème Brûlée & warm oak flavour.
Ragtime Rye Applejack Barrel Finished - a rich, mature, bold rye flavour with notes of cherry & vanilla, a round mouthfeel with a gentle aroma and flavour of bright apple.
