I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

Some people have heard about the gins or whiskeys made in Brooklyn, but many New Yorkers have no idea that there is a traditional Puerto Rican spirit being made in the Bronx. To make the pitorro, Port Morris Distillery uses a mix of brown sugar, corn, local honey, and New York gala apples. They make different infusions and aged versions, but the pure pitorro is perfect on its own – even at a dangerous 92 proof.
