Green Hat Distilled Gin

August, 2017

To help, at least in a small way, we are donating $1 from every, single cocktail we sell today (8/19) to the Southern Poverty Law Center @splcenter . 
Our cocktail hours are the shortest in Ivy City, as we are only open between 1-4pm, so gather all your friends, tell everyone you know, and come imbibe with us today. The more you drink, the more we can donate! We will also set up a donation jar (separate from our tip jar) for those who may want to throw in some extra. As usual, we will offer free tours and free tastings.
Ivy City cares. We care. #Pleasedrinkresponsibly #drinkingforacause #nohatehere

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.
