A fresh & crisp Gin from the first distillery in DC since Prohibitio
Ah, George Cassiday. No-good criminal to some, green-hatted angel to others. Upon returning from World War I, he found his homeland in the grip of Prohibition. Being a crafty devil, he set out on a business venture to supply Spirits to Capitol Hill. This led to a lucrative 10-year career of supplying booze to lawmakers, operating out of his office in the Cannon House Office Building and later the Russell Senate Office Building. He was eventually arrested, but evaded imprisonment, which should come as no surprise, considering the company he kept.
The first post-Prohibition distillery in Washington D.C., Green Hat Distillery was inspired by the green-hatted man. They produce Green Hat Gin from the best winter wheat. Oh, and the distillery was named #3 Best Craft Gin Distillery by USA Today.
With plenty of industry experience between them, they were the flag bearers of the craft distilling revolution, opening the first distillery in Washington, D.C since Prohibition. Only the best winter wheat goes into their Gin that's triple distilled in a copper-pot still. Their Original Batch Gin is a true Washington Original that will be especially enjoyed by the fans of juniper-forward blends that are balanced with original botanicals. The botanicals are added during the final distillation: juniper, lemongrass, herbs, and anise are noticeable on the nose and the crisp palate. Knock it down or mix it up, it's delicious either way! Oh, and let's not forget, it was awarded 95 Points from Tasting Panel Magazine.
