Maybe you’re a long-time whiskey lover or a curious novice just stepping into the world of whiskey. Maybe your friend, your dad, or your significant other is a whiskey connoisseur. Either way, a guided tour and tasting experience at a working whiskey distillery in Manhattan is a pretty awesome day out.
Great Jones Distilling Co, at 686 Broadway in NoHo, turns grain into gold and has quickly earned a reputation for creating the finest whiskey in town. Newly opened in fall 2021, it’s also Manhattan’s first legal whiskey distillery since the dark days of Prohibition, which is quite the claim to fame! And now you can discover this iconic distillery for yourself with a guided tour and whiskey tasting. Book your visit here.
‘Distilling New York’ is a one hour tour where you’ll learn all about the Great Jones Distilling Co story, and discover the ingredients, process and equipment behind the whiskey. You can admire the grand copper stills and lofty architectural design, but you’ll also be impressed by the energy and passion of these whiskey experts.
Not to mention you’ll also enjoy a tasting of three Great Jones whiskies – the Straight Bourbon, Four Grain Bourbon, and Rye. And just fyi, the Four Grain Bourbon and Rye are only available at the NoHo distillery!
Guests on the ‘Distilling New York’ tour will also get $10 off any single bottle of Great Jones whiskey purchased after the tour. So, if one of these whiskeys tickled your taste buds, now is the time to get your hands on a bottle.
Want to take your Great Jones experience to the next level? End your tour with a visit to their newly opened restaurant, The Grid, or stop by the Tasting Room Bar. The Grid serves elevated New American fare, using locally sourced produce and their gold-standard whiskey to create a fresh take on classic dishes. While the Tasting Room Bar offers craft cocktails, local beer and wine, and a delicious all-day dining menu.
You’ll have to book your experience in advance but remember that reservations at The Grid must be made separately. So, if you’d like to shake-up an ordinary week with a more unique experience, or if gifting is your love language and you know the perfect whiskey lover – you’re all set.
