What We Do + How We Do It

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.

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.




At District Distilling Co., we’re proud to present a world-class distillery featuring custom-made German still equipment. Whether you’re a spirit novice or an enthusiast, our staff of experts can answer questions, make recommendations and help you discover something you’ll love. Reservations for tours are booked through OpenTable, using the link below.

Each tour is an intimate guide of our facilities that last approx. 40 minutes. This is followed by a tasting of 4 products that are chosen by our tour guide. We charge $10 per person for each tour excluding tax and tip.



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.
