Ivy City Gin Release Party - Live Music, Signed Bottled, Limited Tickets Available

From our friends at One Eight Distilling...

Gin! Gin! Gin! Ivy City Gin!

The wait is over... Ivy City Gin will be released this weekend

As reported by the Washingtonian and Washington Post, get ready for Ivy City Gin from One Eight Distilling! Beginning with the Official Release Party on Friday, June 12th (and continuing with Distillery Tours & Tastings on Saturday, June 13th), Ivy City Gin will be sold at the distillery and at participating Washington, D.C. retailers beginning this weekend, followed by distribution to area bars and restaurants later in June. Plus, look for One Eight Distilling as the official liquor sponsor of the CapitalBop D.C. Jazz Loft Series in Ivy City this weekend, as part of the D.C. Jazz Festival. Get ready to savor this American dry gin distilled from locally-sourced grains (63% rye, 26% corn, and 11% malted rye), with forward notes of Juniper and Spicebush, and a subtle bouquet of 8 additional botanicals. As part of its ongoing commitment to the Ward 5 community, One Eight Distilling will donate $1 from every bottle sold in D.C. this year to Habitat for Humanity of Washington, D.C. in support of ongoing projects in Ivy City.
