Industry City Distillery makes vodka from beet sugar in an old warehouse in Brooklyn. The distillery is the first project from The City Foundry, a research and design group that brings a unique scientific and artistic vision to small-scale manufacturing. The diverse team responsible for the Foundry's vision consists of "a printmaking biological engineer and science nerd; a machinist with a bent for sculpture; a code-wrangling graphic designer and fabricator; a yoga instructor turned business manager; a hard-drinking commercial salmon fisherman and a whole lot of yeast."
The City Foundry takes up 6,000sqft in Brooklyn. It's 33 35th Street address is between the Gowanus Expressway and 2nd Ave in an old part of the borough that's still very much in touch with its industrial roots. The space holds everything the team of tinkerers, thinkers, and drinkers need to support their efforts. This includes a research lab, machine shop, design studio, printing press, and public space where guests can sample their efforts.
