The donation was made through The Foundation for NY’s Strongest (DSNY’s official non-profit) and will help to protect sanitation workers at BK1 who serve the Greenpoint and Williamsburg area. “We thank Greenhook Ginsmiths and NY Distilling Company for their generosity and support,” Eisenbach said.


Greenhook and St. Agrestis are partnering to deliver their spirits and hand sanitizer to customers Monday – Saturday. Orders placed online before 9 p.m. are guaranteed for free next day delivery with a $50 minimum order.
