GRAB A DRINK
Berlin is known for its lively bar scene, and there’s no shortage of watering holes in which to warm up. If you want to make the most of your libations, however, head to one of the city’s local distilleries. The Preussische Spirituosen Manufaktur (Seestr. 13, www. psmberlin.de) in Wedding makes special gins, vodkas, and herbal liqueurs that will warm you up as you explore the historic factory, which has been manufacturing traditional Prussian spirits since 1874. If you’re looking for something a bit more cutting edge, the Our/Vodka microdistillery (Am Flutgraben 2, www.ourvodka.com) purifies, blends, and hand-bottles its vodka from local ingredients. Although the outfit began in Berlin, where it still hosts events and sells slick bottles of its potent product, the company now has iterations in cities across the United States and Europe.
