One Eight Distilling’s New ‘District Made’ Portfolio One Eight Distilling released its new “District Made” sprits portfolio, which is part of their rebranding strategy. The portfolio was made in collaboration with Thoroughbred Sprits Group and is now partnering with the North American beverage distributor, Breakthru Beverage Group. From here, One Eight aims to expand into the MidAtlantic and further. The portfolio consists of: District Made Straight Bourbon Whiskey, District Made Straight Rye Whiskey, District Made Vodka, District Made Gin and District Made Barrel Rested Gin. “Districts Made,” draws inspiration from Ivy City, a northeast D.C. neighborhood. Drinks are now distributed in octagonal glass bottles, representative of the article that proclaimed D.C. as the nation’s capital, and with the logo and the iconic three D.C. stars embossed into the bottle. The bottle also emphasized its local touch with “District Made,” written on the top of the label, along with a map of Ivy City. The brand’s slogan, “We are One Eight—We Are District Made,” also makes an appearance on the label. 28 Swizzle Chill

“We’re proud to live and work in Washington D.C.,” said Sandy Wood, co-founder and CEO. “The mission of District Made is to feature local grains in our own recipes to create spirits that uniquely showcase flavors of the MidAtlantic region.” “Having watched their targeted growth and expertly executed redesign, I knew I wanted them for BBG D.C. to shine a light on Breathru D.C.’s local craft portfolio,” said Jill Sites, regional trident director of Breakthrough Beverage for the East Region, Breakthru Beverage Group is bringing bottles to D.C. shelves in May and in June in Maryland.
