DC Mixologist Todd Thrasher Launches Green Spiced Rum

Just
in time for National Rum Day, celebrated
bartender-turned-distiller Todd Thrasher has unveiled his flagship
spirit, Thrasher’s Green Spiced Rum. The botanical-based blend is made to
impart flavors reminiscent of English gin—herbaceous, floral, and aromatic with
hints of green citrus.

The 80-proof, molasses-fermented spirit is a mixing rum, intended to
enhance cocktails such as Thrasher’s signature Rum & Tonic, a favorite
sipper of the founder from his explorative days scuba diving throughout the
South Pacific. Thrasher developed the recipe through experimentation using
herbs grown in his backyard.

He
now grows the herbs used in the distilling process, which include thrasher
lemon verbena, lemongrass, lemon balm, mint and green cardamom, on the
large rooftop garden of the Potomac Distilling Co. Situated on Washington DC’s
District Wharf,

Potomac Distilling offers
a three-story urban, waterfront distillery producing three styles of Thrasher’s Rum and housing
the Polynesian-style cocktail haven, Tiki TNT. 

In
celebration of National Rum Day on Aug. 16, Thrasher is serving up complimentary
tastings of
Thrasher’s Rum from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at
Tiki TNT. All-day Rum Day food and drink specials include rum-glazed ribs, rum buns and more.
