Our Founding Farmers scratch-made, source-matters mission has expanded. Growing our love of handcrafted food and drink, we created our very own small-batch distillery, Founding Spirits.

Custom-built inside our restaurant, Farmers & Distillers, Founding Spirits opened in 2016 and hit the ground running. To date, Founding Spirits has won numerous industry awards, gotten rave reviews at charity events, tastings, and festivals in & around DC, has been named the official Official Distillery of Capital One Arena… and we’re just getting started. What began in 2009 with the launch of our first spirit, Founding Farmers Rye Whisky, has developed into a growing line of award-winning spirits meticulously crafted and quickly beloved.
