A very warm and humble thank you to everyone who voted for us in the EdibleDC Awards! We won Best Distillery in both the People’s and Judge’s choice! So excited! Thank you!

Happy day before Friday! We have some good news on this dreary day. If you use the code GREENHAT20 for your purchase of any EmporiYUM tickets, you will receive 20% off your ticket price! That’s a great deal. The EmporiYUM is always a fun event with all local vendors. We’ll be there, as always, selling bottles, gift boxes, and delicious cocktails!

We are happy to announce we are in the running for Edible DC’s Best distillery award. Please take 10 seconds to vote for New Columbia Distillery as best distillery, it would mean a lot to us. We have been committed to bringing DC quality grain to glass spirits since 2011, from VA wheat to MD Aronia berries, and everything local in between. Thank you for your support over the years!

Sincerely,
John, Michael, Travers, Ian, Kat & Brandy

Hey everyone,

We had some visitors yesterday from Circa.com who recorded a video interview about the distillery, gin making process and namesake. Check it out! https://www.circa.com/story/2017/09/26/politics/new-columbia-distillers-dcs-first-distillery-named-after-congresss-favorite-prohibition-bootlegger

Hello DC community, please help us help the folks in Houston during this devastating time. We are donating a portion of our sales on Saturday, September 2nd (this Saturday), as well as our sponsor team members, DC Brau Brewing Company and Boundary Stone DC  (and many more) to The American Red Cross, via the DC Food and Beverage Give to Harvey Relief Fund. Get involved and sign up first and foremost, and then come and drink with us this Saturday to imbibe while you give back!
#DCGIVES #HARVEYRELIEF

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 https://www.splcenter.org/
