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. The distillery is located in the Paymaster Building, the first building past the guard booth.  For visitors coming on tours, be prepared to show ID to enter the Navy Yard, which is otherwise closed to the public. Tours begin on the second floor of the distillery (Building 121).  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.
