Farmers & Distillers is joining DC tennis fans at the city’s annual Citi Open next week.

This year’s Citi Open includes a special 50th Anniversary Kickoff party on Friday, July 27th from 7pm-10pm at the Rock Creek Tennis Center, where we will be serving one of our guest favorites, FF’s Glazed Bacon Lollis. Our Founding Spirits team will be mixing up our Farmer Jon cocktail. Tickets for the kickoff party are available here.

Founding Spirits is the spirit sponsor throughout the weeklong competition, from Saturday, July 28th– Sunday, August 5th, where we will be mixing up our specialty cocktail, the Founding Spirits Mule (mint, ginger, lime, FS Vodka), as well as other cocktails made with Founding Spirits Vodka, Founding Spirits American Whiskey, and Founding Farmers Rye Whisky.

Expert mixologists from Farmers & Distillers are also hosting a special tailgate mixology contest on Friday, August 3, from 6:30pm-9pm. Striving for the best classic Tom Collins, Farmers & Distillers will be competing with bartending friends at Service Bar, The Salt Line, Colada Shop, Archipelago, and Copycat Co.

Tickets for the competition or any of the special events are available here.

The Citi Open, formerly known as the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, has been part of summertime in DC since 1969. Each year, proceeds benefit the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation, which works to improve the lives of DC-area youth, particularly those from lower-income communities, through educational and community-based activities, including tennis. Farmers & Distillers also participated in the kickoff event last year.
