Cherry Picking Spring’s Biggest Celebration at Farmers & Distillers

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.

Celebrating our Neighborhood Traditions this Chinese New Year

At Farmers & Distillers, our Mt Vernon Square neighborhood offers our culinary team a wide array of inspiration, right here in the middle of downtown DC. We are lucky to have the cultural and culinary influence of our nearby Chinatown neighborhood to help guide our chefs when creating our menus.

We are celebrating that influence with the start of Chinese New Year on January 17th, which runs through February 8th. Marking the Year of the Rat, seen as a symbol of wealth and surplus, we will be celebrating with our neighborhood friends on Sunday, January 26, 2020, when downtown DC comes alive with the annual Chinese New Year Parade beginning at 2pm at 6th & Eye St NW, ending at 6th & H St NW.

As we sit just steps from the parade route, we invite you to join us for brunch before enjoying all the sights and sounds the parade has to offer – from the beautiful lion and dragon dances to the amazing Kung Fu demonstrations and traditional fireworks to live music, talented marching bands, and other community-based performers.

Or join us for dinner following your afternoon of revelry. We are serving plenty of delicious, scratch-made fare inspired by our neighborhood. From our Sticky Pork Riblets to our Pan-Fried Dumplings to our Hand-Pulled Noodles to our famous Chinese Fried Chicken, we have something for everyone. Continue the celebration with a sampling of our award-winning craft cocktails from our in-house distillery, Founding Spirits.

For such celebratory meals, and everyday occasions, we recommend guests make reservations with us.

All Aboard the Warmth Wagon with Tommy & Kelly

On one of our coldest winter days so far, Farmers & Distillers joined The Tommy Show and the Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) to raise awareness and funds to help people across the DMV keep warm.

Team members, Julie Sharkey and Emily Hough, joined the WAFF Warmth Wagon at the DowntownDC Holiday Market to hand out fresh-pressed apple cider and our hot First Bake Blend Drip Coffee

It was a great day and a great way to help our neighbors and help spread the word of the work that the WAFF does every day across the DMV to help area residents. We were happy to champion such a great cause, and also get the opportunity to once again partner with DC’s fun, charitable duo, and some of DC’s best citizens, radio personalities, Tommy McFly and Kelli Collis, of The Tommy Show

Across the district, one in five people live below the poverty line and are eligible for heating assistance, but there aren’t enough funds to meet the need. A long-standing partnership between Washington Gas and The Salvation Army USA, the Washington Area Fuel Fund provides local area families in need help with heating costs. In 2018 alone, the WAFF helped 8,000 families. Over the past 36 years, WAFF has contributed $29 million dollars to help 300,000 families stay warm during our cold DC area winters.

If you weren’t able to make it to the DowntownDC Holiday Market, there is still time to donate to this great cause online at WAFFHelp.org.
