This November, Todd Thrasher, multi-year James Beard Award nominee, will open his highly anticipated Potomac Distilling Company at District Wharf.
With four styles of Thrasher’s Rum, he plans to transform the public opinion by proving that Rum is not just a sweet and sugary spirit meant to mix with punchy cocktails. Thrasher will begin distributing his Rum locally and regionally with a focus on the national market.
Taking inspiration from countless rum-sodden scuba diving adventures throughout the South Pacific and West Indies, Thrasher will offer a three-story urban, waterfront distillery producing four styles of Thrasher’s Rum and housing a Polynesian-style neighborhood tavern, Tiki TNT.
Thrasher developed the recipe through experimentation, using herbs grown in his own backyard garden: lemon verbena, lemon balm, mint, green cardamom, and lemongrass. He is now nurturing a rooftop garden at the distillery that grows the ingredients for this distinct blend.
Exciting times in Washington, DC!
