Cotton & Reed

In 2016, the District that had no rum of its own. Profoundly saddened by this fact, Walker Reed and Jordan Cotton, then friends and colleagues in the aerospace industry, decided that no longer would the rum always be gone! Bouyed by the burgeoning distillery scene in DC, they teamed up with the visionary barman Lukas B Smith to create a space that produces and serves some of the most inspired rums and rum cocktails the mid-Atlantic has ever seen. 

Many years later they are still at it, albeit with some staff changes, continuing to expand the already impressive range of flavors that rum can bring to bear with a White Rum that defies the stereotype of 'boring mixing rum' to make some of the most vibrant tropical drinks imaginable. Recently they have added an updated Gold Rum, PX Dark Rum, and Coconut rum to their lineup.

Join us on Saturday, August 26th from 3-6pm as we host Kyle McNeely from the distillery to discuss and taste their various sugarcane spirits, and maybe even make a cocktail or two.
