Zachys has become a true destination for premium wine and spirits tastings. All of our in-store tastings take place here at the store, and it is the destination tastings that inspired us to implement the "Take A Drive" campaign over the years. There are very few places in the world where complimentary tastings are hosted where the wines could range from everyday California Chardonnays to First Growth Bordeaux. It is truly a very unique and special place to taste. We hope to see you soon at one of our events.

The owner of Widow Jane Distilling grew up enjoying the pure waters of the Widow Jane Mine. He now uses these unique waters to distill his artisan spirits in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Widow Jane Whiskey is a true New York City whiskey, evocative of both the rock that created the foundation for this city of skyscrapers and the forward looking, DIY spirit that has made Brooklyn the center of a new artisanal food and beverage movement.
