We’re Ready for National Margarita Day, Are You?

Invite some friends, make a reservation, and join us this February 22nd as we celebrate National Margarita Day.

We’re all in to celebrate this classic. We love margaritas at Farmers & Distillers so much, we feature them on our drink menu all year.

At the top of your list to try is our very own Mike V’s favorite, The Margarita 2019. Our love letter to the classic, ours is made with 100% agave tequila, cointreau, citrus, and egg white. We also have our Strawberry Ginger Margarita with blanco tequila, Patrón Citrónge, lime, strawberry, ginger juice, and mint. Our La Paloma will be made just for you to enjoy with tequila, grapefruit, lime, agave, and mezcal. Want to spice it up? Order our Spicy-Style La Paloma finished with our house-made chipotle syrup. And our signature The Clementine is a crowd-pleasing blend of clementine & chili-infused reposado tequila, bénédictine, maraschino, lime, cold-pressed pineapple, and agave.

Stay to eat and pair your margaritas with our scratch-made Chips & Dips, served with scratch-made guacamole, salsa, and pimento cheese, our signature FF Garlic Black Pepper Wings or FF Glazed Bacon Lollis, or any of our delicious burgers, sandwiches, and more.

See you February 22nd to get your margarita on!

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.

Founding Spirits Pours Our Craft Vodka & More at the DC Distillers Festival

Founding Spirits, our small-batch distillery located in the heart of Farmers & Distillers, joined the party at the DC Distillers Festival this past weekend.

This curated, three-session, all-day, all-night event featured 1920’s jazz bands and a burlesque show. Gatsby-era costumes were encouraged and plentiful in this speakeasy environment. Guests sampled over 60 craft spirits to their heart’s content from over 20 craft distillers, including our very own DC-based distillery, Founding Spirits.

We poured samples of our spirits, including our craft vodka, and mixed three of our signature craft cocktails, including: Buck’s Blood Orange, pictured above, (Founding Spirits Vodka, lemon, ginger, honey, aperol); Boulevardier (Founding Spirits American Whiskey, Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, campari); and our Amaro Daiquiri (Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, Founding Farmers Rye Whisky, orgeat, lime).

This one of a kind annual event was held at the Long View Gallery in downtown DC. The day and night included a lot of mingling and chatting, tasting and relaxing, and even some dancing. We were delighted to be a part of this year’s party.
