You may recognize this hat from not a person, but a well known DC-produced gin bottle. 

When it opened in 2012, New Columbia Distillers became the first distillery to operate in the District since Prohibition. In the last four years, business has boomed and you’ll find the facility packed every weekend. On this exclusive tour, you’ll learn about how gin is made and hear the story behind “Green Hat,” the namesake of this distillery’s signature gin (hint: it involves Congress, Prohibition, and booze).
