New Columbia Distillers, Located in DC and Makers of Green Hat Gin


Recommended Posts

They are really nice guys and gave me a quick tour of their distillery. They are definitely still trying to improve their product which is a bit expensive at $36, but in line with the costs of a very handmade gin (batch number stamped by hand). Batch 1 is already pretty tasty. It definitely has a sweetness from the all-wheat recipe and it's not overwhelmingly juniper-y. Some citrus- mostly in the nose. I think a really great martinez can be made from this as it has more similarities to Old Tom than London Dry gin. As the "green hat" references prohibition era and pre-prohibition era gin, this makes some sense. It's nice to see a distillery in DC and one doing their own thing (not buying wholesale liquor and flavoring/aging it).
