Breuckelen Distilling began crafting gin and whiskey during the summer of 2010.
Since Prohibition, state regulations had discouraged distillers from doing business in New York City. But in recent years,
The State Liquor Authority in 2007, under Gov. Eliot Spitzer, introduced a $128 farm license that allowed manufacturers who used at least 75 percent New York State grain to produce small quantities of alcohol and sell it directly to customers at distilleries.
Breuckelen Distilling produces each of their spirits entirely from scratch under one roof in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
They mill, mash, ferment, distill, mature, fill, and label each and every bottle of spirits that bears
Breuckelen 77 Wheat Whiskey
Breuckelen 77 Local Rye & Corn Whiskey is crafted by milling a mash of 90% rye and 10% corn. The grains, which are sourced from local farmers, are milled inside a mixer traditionally reserved for concrete. After milling and mashing the grains, Estabrooke ferments the mash at the distillery without using any genetically modified yeast. As a result, fermentation is a much more costly, labor-intensive process for Estabrooke. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled inside a 400-liter Ulrich Kothe hybrid copper-pot/column still.

Breuckelen 77 Rye & Corn Whiskey
Distilled from New York Wheat (previously known as Black Wax) This whiskey is produced the same way we make our wheat base spirit for our gin. That means we distill the grain in a manner to retain the character of the wheat. That flavor is then matched with the contribution of the barrel as it matures here in our space. Distilled from 100% wheat, aged a minimum of 4 months in new American Oak.

In 1646, under the auspices of the Dutch West India Company, the village of Breuckelen became the first municipality in what eventually became the state of New York. At the time, Breuckelen was still part of New Netherland, a Dutch colony. The Dutch lost Breuckelen to the British in 1664 and, over time, the name evolved from Breuckelen, to Brockland, to Brocklin, to Brookline, to Brookland, and eventually, to Brooklyn.
Breuckelen Distilling Co. opened its doors after Brad Estabrooke, a former securities trader at Deutsche Bank, left his job and read an in-flight magazine article about New York amending its laws to accommodate craft distilleries. After biking to 77 19th Street in Brooklyn, he found a space "” a former boiler room "” in an industrial neighborhood sandwiched between the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the East River. In September 2010, Brad began distilling Breuckelen 77 Whiskey.
