New York Distilling Company Will Celebrate Anniversary With Gin, Rye, and Sandy-Relief

You'll probably want to be there.

On December 5 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the NY Distilling Company is throwing a party to celebrate its one-year birthday, but also to commemorate the 79th anniversary of Repeal Day. Good times indeed. At the Shanty, that magical Williamsburg spot where NY Distilling Company (to paraphrase Nelly) regularly feels like bustin' loose and feels like making hooch, there will be punch, hot toddies, and a chance to win your own personalized five-gallon barrel of rye. Each partygoer will receive a 375 ml bottle of unaged rye as it flows from the still, and there will be Brooklyn Brewery beer and snacks from Stinky BKLYN and Jacob's Pickles. Best of all, all net proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Brooklyn Recovery Fund. More details, and information on tickets, can be found here. [NYDistilling]
