Brooklyn’s vibrant distillery scene has seen a remarkable addition in the form of Industry City Distillery (ICD). Nestled in the bustling heart of Sunset Park, this innovative distillery has captured the essence of New York’s spirit with their unparalleled Industry Standard Vodka.
The roots of Industry City Distillery can be traced back to 2011, when a group of visionaries founded the company with a shared goal of creating a sustainable urban distillery. Their quest to craft a unique vodka led them to experiment with beet sugar as the primary ingredient, a departure from the more traditional grains used by rural-based competitors. This bold choice set them on an extraordinary path to redefine vodka production in the heart of Brooklyn.
Unlike many distilleries that rely on purchasing industrial spirits and blending them, ICD takes complete control of the process. They meticulously craft their own stills, making them the first distillery in New York since the prohibition era to undertake such a feat. This level of control allows ICD to ensure that only the finest ingredients go into their vodka, and every step of the process is crafted with machines and methods created solely by them.
Sustainability is at the core of Industry City Distillery’s ethos. The distillery’s Brooklyn-based facility operates with unmatched efficiency, using one-quarter of the water and half of the power consumed by other distilleries in the United States. Their handmade equipment, designed with a keen eye for thermal transfer, ensures that waste heat is utilized, reducing energy consumption further. In a city where space is a premium and resources are precious, ICD’s dedication to sustainability shines bright.
The result of their ingenuity and dedication is Industry Standard Vodka, a smooth and refined spirit that can be enjoyed neat or in a variety of cocktails. Its distinctive flavor profile is achieved through a specialized distillation process that minimizes unwanted flavor components at every stage. With every sip, you’ll discover the authentic spirit of New York City, bottled for your enjoyment.
Industry City Distillery is a testament to creativity, innovation, and sustainable craftsmanship. By distilling their vodka in Brooklyn’s urban landscape, they’ve successfully paved the way for a new wave of distillation techniques. Cheers to the pioneering spirit of Industry City Distillery, where passion, ingenuity, and sustainability meet to create exceptional spirits that embody the spirit of New York City!
