Green Hat Distillery: Prohibition Inspired Gin

One of Washington, DC's prohibition secrets is celebrated in the diverse neighborhood of Ivy City at Green Hat Distillery. 

In the 1920s, when prohibition kept much of the country dry, The Man with the Green Hat delivered bootleg gin to much of congress for 10 years. 

Hypocrisy, right? Well, now you can drink like a congress person and toast this era with gin tastings from Green Hat Distillery. 

Plus, don't miss a chance to chat with the knowledgeable staff about the history and gins while they mix delightful cocktails. 

They'll even help you decided on a bottle to bring home for your backyard cocktails. 

Enjoy cozy indoor and outdoor seating. Or call ahead to ahead to organize a tour and learn more about DC's prohibition history.
