Have a British Summer Cuppa!
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.
Now, summer in Britain is perhaps a bit of an evasive concept – it's difficult to pinpoint when exactly it begins. This is why it's a good thing the grand British Summer Cup tradition exists, so you can tell the summer's definitely in town!
Green Hat Summer Cup is ideal for making this traditional English drink. The distillery's Navy Gin is infused with an extra set of botanicals, fruit, herbs, spices, and sweetener, so you should expect a powerful dance of citrus, rosehips, cucumber, verbena, black tea, lavender, and other herbs. We suggest you do it the proper traditional British way and have it with lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.
