We’re thrilled to be included in this Gowanus round up from The Guardian!
Further proof that this is the hottest neighborhood in Brooklyn! Breukelen Distilling gets a nice mention in our own write up, and our friends over at Four & Twenty Blackbirds and Crop to Cup are written up as well.
Gowanus Wine Merchants
After years without a proper liquor store to call its own, the entire neighbourhood rejoiced when Gowanus Wine Merchants opened in late 2012. The cosy corner shop, which offers free tastings every Friday from 6-8pm, pays homage to its surroundings in both name and product: spirits by local distilleries Widow Jane and Breuckelen Distilling, maker of Glorious Gin (the latter is headquartered eight blocks away) sit alongside affordable bottles of selected European wine.
