*Apr 17*A legal distillery may open in Brooklyn, the first in New York City since Prohibition. “Tom Potter, who co-founded Brooklyn Brewery 22 years ago, is looking to get into the gin- and whisky-making business this summer with New York Distillery Co.” Potter proclaims, “N.Y.C. deserves its own distiller, and I think I’m the man to do it.” |NYDN|
