Fort Hamilton Distillery was born out of a desire to revive the classic pre-Prohibition New York-style rye and has since become a destination for connoisseurs of cocktails as well as cocktail and American history. Named for the historic Brooklyn site Fort Hamilton, which itself was named after Alexander Hamilton, Fort Hamilton Distillery has a tasting room, a robust cocktail program, offers tours and has an interesting story. Alex Clark, co-founder of Fort Hamilton Distillery with his wife Amy Grindeland, joins us on the podcast to discuss whiskey history and culture, authentic pre-Prohibition rye, distillers row in Industry City and Alexander Hamilton.
