Holiday Gifts for Spirit Lovers

The gift-giving season is upon us. At Founding Spirits, we have great gifts for whiskey lovers, dry gin lovers, vodka lovers, amaro lovers, and honestly, for any spirit lovers. Our award-winning spirits can make an ordinary alcohol gift set something special. All of our Founding Spirits are made in small batches in our distillery right in the heart of nation’s capital.

Give something extraordinary this holiday season:

Build your own festive, liquor gift sets. For example, our favorite whiskey gift set—a fantastic whiskey Christmas gift for all of the whiskey lovers on your list—includes two of our handcrafted spirits for a great combination of tastes: our Founding Spirits American Whiskey and our four-time award-winning Founding Spirits American Amaro. You can also build a holiday gift set using your favorite selection or all of the spirits in our collection.

Share a bottle. Choose from any of our complete line of Founding Spirits, including our specially crafted GW Limited Edition Founding Spirits Amaro, featuring honey from the urban apiary we support at The George Washington University. All are available by the bottle for purchase online. You can also pick up our craft vodka, dry gin, American whiskey, and our unusually delicious amaro at Farmers & Distillers, and at many local retailers.

Treat someone to a taste of our spirits. Join us at our bar and let our mixologists craft the perfect cocktail for you and your special guest(s) featuring our spirits. We are open seven days a week throughout the holiday season. Book a behind-the-scenes tour of our distillery. Our Founding Spirits Tour & Tasting is a great present for those who would enjoy learning how we distill our spirits, getting a taste of what we are distilling, and sipping one of our renowned craft cocktails. Tours can be booked between 11am and 2pm on Saturdays and last approximately 60 minutes.

Plan a spirited holiday celebration with us at Founding Farmers & Distillers. Contact us to create a fun and unique holiday party with our handcrafted spirits as the focus. What could be a better Christmas present for someone who already has it all than a festive occasion with great friends, great cocktails, and great food?

Give a Farmers Restaurant Group gift certificate. Our gift certificates are good in any of our restaurants, including at our award-winning bars. If you have a craft cocktail or craft spirit-loving friend, family member, or colleague, get them a gift certificate and let them experience some of our scratch-made goodness in person.

There are so many ways we can help you create a distinct holiday gift for so many people on your list… from someone very special to that troublesome someone you never know what to get. Give Founding Spirits this year.

Unite the District

Great music, food & drink – that’s definitely a combination that is sure to Unite the District! On Friday, October 4th Founding Spirits joined some of DC’s best restaurants and breweries at Audi Field for Unite the District. From cuisine and arts to drinks and music, this unique, first-of-its-kind event combined all things DC and what makes our city so special. 

Event goers arrived at Audi Field at 7pm on Friday with a welcome Unite the District tasting glass, then all were invited to explore tastings from local breweries, restaurants, and distilleries. The Founding Spirits crew served up our FS Mule, made with our very own Founding Spirits Vodka, ginger, lime, and mint. Not only was our handcrafted cocktail a hit with event attendees, but the event band, Black Alley, also came by to enjoy the FS Mule and our FS American Whiskey.

If you weren’t able to attend, or just love our FS Mule and our spirits, come on over to Farmers & Distillers, the restaurant where Founding Spirits is located. If you’d like to craft your own version of a mule, you can purchase our award-winning Founding Spirits Vodka as well as our amaro and American whiskey online or at 30+ local retailers across the DMV.

You can also join us on Saturdays for our free Tour & Tasting, starting at 11am. Book your tour today.
