Industry City, a group of repurposed waterfront warehouses that until 1974 was called Bush Terminal, houses this Brooklyn vodka distillery built by five pals, all newcomers to the alcohol industry. During ICD’s free tour, spot house-made items like a $3,000 yeast propagator tank that normally retails for more than $300,000 and a letterpress for bottle labels. Along with the golden Willy Wonka–inspired ticket you receive with your tour, you’ll also have a chance to taste the goods (again, for free). There’s a certain Wonkaness to the space itself as well: Keep an eye out for everything from rubber unicorn heads to Razor scooters.
