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, Fort Hamilton New World Gin is as delightful over ice or as it is in any number of gin-based cocktails—from a Gimlet to a Martini.
