Made by Hand: The Distiller

#FilmFestFridays takes you on a journey inside the distillery of Brad Estabrooke, the first gin distiller in Brooklyn since prohibition.

The Breuckelen Distilling Company in Brooklyn is the first gin distiller to operate in this area since prohibition.

In this short film, produced by Made by Hand, Brad Estabrooke talks about starting the distillery from scratch and the imperfect process of perfecting a craft.

Knowing that you could fail brings you that much closer to success, Estabrooke believes. It’s one of the lessons his experience taught him.
