Not many people know that the current craft-distilling boom in New York City isn't posturing, but rather a resurgence with legitimate historical precedent: There was a time before Prohibition when the city produced as much as 25 percent of the country's whiskey. On this "Whiskey Wars!" tour, you'll hear all about the time Marines were sent to the Navy Yard to wage war on illegal distilling, as well as get a taste of the excellent moonshine made by current above-board Navy Yard occupants Kings County Distillery.
