Each spring, a jubilee of pink blossoms abound in DC bringing visitors from near and far to celebrate our nation’s beautiful Cherry Blossoms. We are delighted to share in the springtime spirit with a special cocktail and not one, but two, desserts to mark the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival.

Farmers & Distillers is partnering with the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s (RAMW) Cherry Picks program to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival with special food and drink offerings for diners across our region.

From March 20th through April 12th, we will be showcasing our Cherry Blossom-themed picks the best way we know how – by serving up our scratch-made food and drink for guests to enjoy after working up a thirst (and appetite) touring the beautiful Cherry Blossoms around the Tidal Basin and our national monuments. 

Come in and sip on our Gin Blossom handcrafted cocktail, made with the newest spirit in our distilling collection, Founding Spirits Dry Gin, as well as lime, cinnamon, mint, and of course, finished with fresh cherries. We’re also serving two tasty desserts to celebrate our nation’s Cherry Blossoms. Our freshly made, hand-filled Cherry Blossom Donut and our delicious Cherry Chocolate Fudge Sundae, made with our house-churned cherry chocolate chip and vanilla ice creams. These desserts are worth every decadent bite, we promise.  

The National Cherry Blossom Festival marks the beginning of spring in our nation’s capital with specially created programs to promote arts and culture and to celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds us. These programs are designed to educate and inspire not only during the festival, but all year long.

Join us for the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s RAMW Cherry Picks program to discover what our team has cooking. Stay for the Gin Blossom cocktail and a great meal finished off with both of our desserts. We recommend making a reservation.
