Like the creation of Frankenstein's monster, making whiskey requires knowledge of chemistry, complex lab equipment, and a whole bunch of lightning. Catch liquor in a bottle with this Groupon.

NYC Craft Distillers Festival
The NYC Craft Distillers Festival celebrates the future of local distilling, while sending partygoers back in time. Within the swanky confines of the Bowery Hotel, revelers relive the era of Prohibition—a time when drinking alcohol and smiling on Sundays was illegal—from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. While a traditional jazz band fires up catchy tunes from the 1920s, local distillers pour potent sips of craft spirits such as Hudson Whiskey from William Grant & Sons, McKenzie Bourbon from Finger Lakes Distilling, and Maggie's Farm White Rum from Allegheny Distilling LLC.
