The Locally Distilled Pre-Prohibition Sprits of DC's Own Jos. A. Magnus

The Weygandt Wines tasting counter is about turn into a rollicking Pre-Prohibition bar...

Don't worry, booze isn't about to be banned (phew!)—but there's nothing wrong with a little old-time celebration with a few legendary libations.

Join us this Friday evening, when we welcome our friends from Jos. A. Magnus to the shop for a tasting and sale featuring their full line-up locally distilled, Pre-Prohibition spirits!

Located in the Ivy City, DC's up-and-coming distillery and brewing district, Jos. A. Magnus is committed to bringing fine spirits and pre-prohibition heritage back to the District.

They'll have their full line-up of flagship spirits on display this Friday, including:

  • Jos. A. Magnus Bourbon, a marriage of straight bourbon whiskey aged in white oak and finished in Oloroso sherry, Pedro Ximénez and Cognac casks. Rich and deep notes of vanilla, citrus, dark chocolate, brown sugar and dark stone fruits deliver with a lingering, warm finish.

  • Murray Hill Blended Bourbon, a blend of 18 year bourbon, 11 year bourbon and 9 year light whiskey with notes of honey, toffee, brown baking spices, vanilla and char with a hint of black pepper that persists through the finish.

  • Vigilant District Dry Gin, a perfect cocktail gin with a deliciously tart palate of flavors including hand-foraged Oregon juniper berries, fresh herbs and a bright hint of citrus with oro blanco grapefruit and bergamot orange.

  • Royal Seal Vodka, with its crisp clean finish and just a hint of bergamot orange, excels in showcasing accompanying cocktail elements. 100% corn-based Grain Neutral Spirits are distilled seven times for a smooth experience that leaves a whisper of mellow sweetness on the palate.

So if you find yourself in need of a drink at the end of a long week, you know just what bar to belly up to... we'll see you there!
