We’re hosting another Distill Creative Night at Kings County Distillery! We’ll be drinking cocktails and doing our favorite craft—shibori indigo dyeing—outside on the patio. Why? Because we love cocktails and we love crafts and we love being outside.
Come make a craft with Distill Creative and a cocktail on the house! Enjoy the outdoor patio and go home with a shibori indigo dyed tea towel or t-shirt. You’ll also get a free ticket to come back for a behind-the-scenes tour of Kings County Distillery so you can see how your new favorite local whiskey is made.
Kings County Distillery is New York City's oldest whiskey distillery, specializing in authentic, small batch bourbon. Originally a homemade product, our whiskey is made by a small team of master distillers in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It’s a ten minute walk from the Distill Creative Studio, so they are as local as it gets.
Shibori is a Japanese style of resist dyeing that involves twisting, tying, binding, folding, and other manipulation of fabric. We will cover classic techniques and guide you to create your own unique designs.
