Our Award-Winning Amaro is Available for Purchase

Founding Spirits award-winning Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro is now available for purchase online at FoundingSpirits.com and in-store at the home of our distillery, Farmers & Distillers.

Infused with 22 herbs, botanicals, and spices, and sweetened with molasses and local honey, our distinctive amaro is exactly what its name suggests: never bitter. Distilled, aged, sweetened, bottled, and hand-labeled at Founding Spirits, it has been a featured spirit on our Farmers Restaurant Group restaurant cocktail menus for just over a year.

Our master distiller and cocktail aficionado, Jon Arroyo, created this spirit to bring the magic of the before and after dinner drink he discovered on his travels abroad back home to the U.S. A guest favorite in our craft cocktails across Founding Farmers, Farmers Fishers Bakers, and Farmers & Distillers, it’s especially good in our Amaro Daiquiri and our take on the famous Negroni Swizzle.

Now, you can have this award-winning taste in the comfort of your own home.

Stop by Farmers & Distillers to get your bottle today. Or order online.

Our Bloody Mary Adds Spice to a Great Weekend Festival

Over the weekend, Founding Spirits joined Chesapeake Oyster & Wine Festival goers for much more than oysters and wine. Our team was on hand sharing all of our micro distillery’s spirits, and serving up our award-winning Bloody Mary made with our award-winning craft Founding Spirits Vodka.

The event included the first-ever Bloody Mary Pavilion, aka “We’ll Shake It and Make It – You Garnish It.” Our Bloody Mary – which has been named as DC’s Best Bloody Mary many years in a row – was the main attraction and could be tailored just how guests wanted it, with the many garnishes and hot sauces provided.

Every year, the Chesapeake Oyster & Wine Festival, run by TasteUSA, features top-rated American and International wines paired with the Chesapeake’s wild and farm-raised oysters, as well as other seafood dishes provided by local restaurants including jumbo lump crab cakes, lobster rolls, oyster po’ boys, lobster mac & cheese, and fish tacos.

Our Bloody Mary, and all of our craft spirits, was a great addition to the festival of tastes.

If you missed the weekend fun, our Bloody Mary is available at all of our restaurants. It is, of course, a crowd favorite at our weekend brunches but that isn’t the only time we serve it. Check out our menus and stop by Farmers & Distillers, Founding Farmers, or Farmers Fishers Bakers to see if you agree with Washington City Paper readers. Do you think we shake and serve the best Bloody Mary in town?
