Upcoming Schedule Change
Starting October 7th we will be offering 1pm tours on Sundays.
Reservations for weekday tours are recommended and can be pre-purchased above. Tours are $14 and include a tasting and admission to the Boozeum. Tours last an hour to an hour and 15 minutes and cover the history, culture, and science of distilling whiskey. Private tours and/or guided tastings are also available starting at $250—for more on special tours and classes, see the events page.
We also partner with several other Brooklyn institutions to offer semi-regular tours, such as the Whiskey Wars Factory Tours with BLDG92, Dead Distiller Tours with Green-Wood Cemetery, the Grain to Grape Tour with Rooftop Reds, and the “Brooklyn Distilled” Walking Tour with Big Onion Tours, among others.
The Gatehouses are located at the corner of Sands Street and Navy Street (use 299 Sands St. in mapping software) on the Dumbo side of the Navy Yard. For visitors coming on tours, please check in at the Gatehouses for directions as the tour route may change on busy days. Be prepared to show ID to enter the Navy Yard, which is otherwise closed to the public. Closest subways are A/C at High Street and the F at York Street. Parking is limited on weekdays, but free inside the Navy Yard for visitors to the distillery in the lot past the building on Perry Ave at Fourth Street. Guests walking over the Brooklyn Bridge should take the left fork entering Brooklyn, walk east on Prospect Ave and follow the plaza to Sands Street under the Manhattan Bridge.
