Greenhook Ginsmiths

When Brooklyn native Steven DeAngelo began distilling in 2012—as only the second new distillery in New York City since Prohibition—his project was distinctly different than most start-up micro-distillers before and since. Eschewing the booming local whiskey scene and skipping lightly past the quick return of vodka, Steven focused his vision with laser-like precision on just one category: Gin.

Using a custom-made vacuum still, Steven can distill at a lower atmospheric pressure, and therefore a lower temperature, capturing subtle aromas from delicate botanicals without damaging their nuance.

Today, Greenhook Ginsmiths is one of the most well-regarded small distillers in the country, and though Steven’s range has expanded dramatically, his focus remains clearly single-minded as he presents three different styles of gin, each unique in its own right, each exemplary in the category.
