Kings County Distillery Creates New Flavor Infusion

By November 27, 2021Connecticut, Top News

Kings County Distillery’s Grapefruit Jalapeño Moonshine, an 80-proof spirit infused with grapefruit peels and whole and crushed jalapeño peppers.

Kings County Distillery’s Grapefruit Jalapeño Moonshine joins the Worldwide Wines spirits portfolio. Founded in 2010, Kings County makes handmade moonshine, bourbon and other whiskeys out of the 120-year-old Paymaster Building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The newest addition takes Kings County 80-proof signature corn whiskey, made from 80% New York State organic corn and 20% malted barley, and infuses it with grapefruit peels and whole and crushed jalapeño peppers, designed to strike a balance between citrus, bitterness and heat, creating a smooth and delicious substitute for spiced spirits in margaritas, or in place of tequila. Kings County blends distilling practices from a variety of cultures into creative whiskeys that remain traditional, using Scottish copper pot stills, open fermentation and local grains to make American whiskeys that expand the category.
