Wardman Wines And Zeke’s Team Up For Coffee And Cocktails – Free Tasting Friday

Two of our favorite  area businesses are teaming up for a free tasting this Friday. From Wardman Wine’s event page:

You don’t have to give up coffee just because it’s hot outside! Brandon stops in from our favorite coffee roaster, Zeke’s. Zeke’s roasts in small batches, focuses on single origin arabica beans, and creates custom blends. He’s bringing their cold brew, made with beans roasted in a One-Eight Distilling whiskey and talks about how to do iced coffee. Eric will show us a DIY coffee liqueur you can make and makes a few iced coffee cocktails to keep cool this summer!

Sounds great! Wardman Wines is located at 625 Monroe Street NE.

Although this is outside Brookland, we thought readers would like to know about One Eight Distilling, which opened January 10th in nearby Ivy City.  From their website:

We distill sophisticated, handcrafted spirits in small batches from grain to glass all in our distillery located in the nation’s capital.  Our custom designed stills from Holland and Germany use cutting edge technology that gives us an unparalleled degree of precision and control over the distilling process. If we’re not busy distilling Rock Creek Whiskey, Ivy City Gin, or District Made Vodka, we’re experimenting with new mash bills and spirits, so please check back with us and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for limited releases sold only from our tasting room.

Visitors are encouraged to drop in on Saturdays from 1:00 -4:00 pm for tours, samples, and sales, and there will be food trucks on hand. One Eight Distilling is located at 1135 Okie Street NE.
