Spirit on the Bar

Our collection of spirits includes a wide variety of standards as well as many bottles from the vibrant and growing realm of craft and artisinal distilleries. We are especially excited to represent many of DC's own emerging distillers, who have trained with national masters. As part of our #onthebar series, we highlight a rotating series of spirits we want you to know about. Will it be a Brazilian vodka made with sugar cane or a whisky made in the mountains of Japan, a gin made with fuji apples in the Pacific Northwest, or a traditional vermouth from Turin? You'll have to come in on the regular or keep an eye on our Instagram feed to find out!

Beginning March 3rd: Milam & Greene Port Cask Finished Rye Whiskey

Founder Marsha Milam, Master Blender Heather Greene, and veteran Master Distiller Marlene Holmes combined have more than 60 years in the whiskey industry. Since its founding, Milam & Greene have put together a truly inspired way to run a distillery. Their distillery in the Texas Hill Country is their primary facility with its own 300 gallon copper pot still, but they also distill on a classic column still in Bardstown, KY. The specific climate in the Texas hills gives them unique aging characteristics, and make their cask finishes and blends particularly shine. This has been a favorite whiskey in the shop for a while now, and that makes it all the more important to raise our glass to these three badass women and their team and say,"Thanks!"

Beginning February 18th: Ten to One Rum Black History Month Artist Edition

One of more popular new brands of rum in the last few years, Ten to One brings together rums from different parts of the Caribbean to make a collective blend comprised of Barbados and Dominican column still rums with Trinidadian rum and a high-ester Jamaican pot still rum. For this special Limited Edition bottling, they paired with artist Devin B Johnson to feature his painting Inner Glow on the box and label. From the box: "The overarching blue theme draws from historical West African influences and is utilized as a symbol of togetherness and harmony, while the prominent figure, representative of the African diaspora, has a poignant gaze to the future."
