Green Hat Distilled Gin

DC’s Distillery to Release a New Seasonal Gin

DC’s own New Columbia Distillers is pleased to announce that it will release its Spring/Summer 2013 limited production gin at the distillery on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

“This is a great gin for warm weather drinks like a Gin & Tonic, Gin Rickey or Southside,” said John Uselton, Co-Owner and Distiller.  “The new recipe for this batch has additional floral notes, including Spring cherry blossoms, three different citrus peels, rosemary and a bit of pepper.  It’ll be bottled at a higher proof to go great in tall drinks.”  The new gin will be labeled with the familiar Green Hat Gin name, but specially designated “Spring/Summer 2013”.

“We will release special new gins like this only in small batches here at the distillery,” said Uselton.  “We are very excited about our first seasonal.”  The new Green Hat will be available for purchase at the distillery at 1832 Fenwick St. NE in Washington at 1pm on Saturday, 4/20.  It will be available at selected liquor stores, bars and restaurants in DC starting the week of April 22.
New Columbia Distillers is the first distillery in DC in a century.  It started producing award-winning Green Hat Gin in October 2012.  The distillery is open for tastings and tours Saturday afternoons from 1 to 4pm.
