What We Do + How We Do It

Our Space

Located at the heart of the bustling 14th and U Street Corridors, our 19th century row houses feature neo-Renaissance architecture. It’s inviting, classic and designed to make you feel at home. 

We want to deliver a unique distillery experience to a neighborhood location in the heart of the District while at the same time preserving the original character of the building and our community.


Our Ingredients

It matters who grows what goes in our glasses. We partner with suppliers of the best ingredients, including many of the Mid-Atlantic's finest farmers. And, our gins feature juniper species not found in other gins, and wildcrafted from the West Texas mountains.

Our Process

We use traditional distilling techniques to create spirits that we’re proud to put our name on. We’ve imported two copper pot stills and a 42 plate twin copper column system from legendary German still manufacturer, Carl.




We're honored that our spirits have been awarded medals by the American Distilling Institute (ADI), the Beverage Tasting Institute, the Denver International Spirits Competition, the New York International Spirits Competition, and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

District Distilling was named DC Gin Distillery of the Year by the
New York International Spirits Competition.
