The Battle of Brooklyn broke out in a watermelon patch one block from Fort Hamilton’s distillery in August 1776. Fort Hamilton nods to this history by distilling cannonball watermelon alongside freshly peeled cucumber and 9 other botanicals for a truly liberating experience. With its delicate botanicals on full display, this critically acclaimed gin (92 points from Wine Enthusiast) is pure sunshine in a bottle and a perfect base for a host of cocktails, from a Gimlet to a Martini.


Fort Hamilton Distillery

In August 1775, Alexander Hamilton’s Hearts of Oak militia orchestrated a daring raid on British forces in lower Manhattan. Under fire from the HMS Asia, they seized and repurposed a battery of British cannons, forming America’s first artillery company. Fort Hamilton Distillery’s historically inspired spirits from Alex Clark Spirits in Industry City, Brooklyn, are created in the spirit of that revolution. Surrounded by landmarks of the Revolutionary War, the distillery is named after Brooklyn’s Fort Hamilton, which in turn is named after Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton. The distillery was founded with a mission: To celebrate and recapture the “spirit” of America’s original whiskey style, New York Rye. With an emphasis on the grain rather than the barrel, their spirits are barreled and bottled at a proof which lend themselves to cocktails while remaining balanced, bold, and nuanced on their own.

In addition to its award-winning straight rye whiskeys, Fort Hamilton Distillery also produces critically acclaimed single cask rye, blends of straight rye whiskey as well as high-rye bourbon, and corn-based American dry gin and vodka.
