Green Hat Distilled Gin

Spring/Summer Release

April 15, 2013, Washington, D.C.

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.

Upcoming.

Peter and Kat have been working on something new for the last several months, and we are happy to announce the newest member of Capitoline’s line-up has arrived!

************************************************************

TIBER will be dropping on 2/20/18!!!

************************************************************

What is Tiber, you ask? Capitoline Tiber is a blend of bitter, citrus, spice, and ginger.  Named after Rome’s great riverand Washington’s own buried and forgotten Tiber Creek, this unique Apertivo is inspired by the long tradition of Italian bitter liqueurs.  Meant to be enjoyed in any of your favorite cocktails, such as a Negroni or a Bouldevardier or simply over ice with seltzer.

Peter and Kat’s inspiration for Tiber comes from many years of drinking classic Italian bitter liqueurs in their many iterations. Peter first encountered a Campari & Soda in the late 70’s in Rome where it was poured from the iconic pebbled-glass bottle of the time. Kat spent many an hour drinking and mixing with the classic Campari, as well as many Amari, throughout her years managing cocktail programs in restaurants here in DC. Once Capitoline Vermouth was released here at the distillery, we were missing just one vital  ingredient for an in-house, all DC Negroni. After several months of mixing, tinkering, tippling, and testing, Tiber was born.

The official release party for Capitoline’s Tiber will be Saturday, February 17th from 1-4pm at our distillery.

 

The official, “out on the town” Tiber celebration will be held at 2 Birds, 1 Stone on February 20th, 6pm-midnight. So please, join us at 2 Birds, 1 Stone on 2/20 for a Best Friends Gang gathering of Tiber and other Capitoline Vermouth cocktails.
