"The District's first distillery in a century has just released its initial bottling of Gin. A vibrant nose of citrus peel and garden herbs (fennel and sage) entices you to take a sip. Good weight and balance on the palate with a touch of earthiness. A must for any Gin aficionado, cocktail connoisseur, and DC local!
The name comes from Prohibition-era bootlegger George Cassiday, who supplied members of Congress with illegal liquor between 1920 and 1930. Cassiday set up shop in the basement of the Senate's Cannon Building and later the Russell Building. He wore a green fedora and became know as The Man in the Green Hat."
