NV Green Hat Gin

image may not be actual bottle available

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.

Gin has come a long way since its infamous origins as the scourge of the working classes in 18th century in England. Once called "mother's ruin," gin and its closest relative, Jenever, enjoyed mass popularity during the early 20th century, in cocktails and punches across the globe, but declined with cocktail culture in the 60's and 70's. The international resurgence of martinis and speakeasies has led to a boom in microdistilleries producing high-quality gins for all tastes, from dry to sweet, and with all the aromatic variety of a spice market.
