  • Cocktails have been a major part of DC culture since the very beginning — George Washington even owned the largest distillery in the country! Join us as we explore the history of prohibition and cocktails in DC and learn how alcohol helped shape this country.

    Your DC cocktail tour starts in Indiana Plaza, the site of the famous Temperance Fountain gifted to DC to show support for Prohibition. From there, we take you to visit three of DC’s best cocktail bars where we sample drinks, meet the people behind the bars, and learn how their craft cocktails are made.

    We take you underground to a classic DC speakeasy, to the penthouse for a breathtaking view of the city, and everywhere in-between.

    Along the way, uncover how cocktails have played a massive part in DC’s history, learn how Prohibition shaped the city, and discover the local distilling movement that’s returning. By the time you’re done, you’ll never look at cocktails in quite the same way.
