Nearly two years in the making, the project is Thrasher’s first venture into spirits production and an exciting transition from a storied career as one of the Beltway’s most celebrated barman. Potomac Distilling Compan houses a three-story Polynesian-style Tiki bar, Tiki TNT, which draws inspiration from countless rum-sodden scuba diving adventures throughout the South Pacific and West Indies during Thrasher’s time as a dive master. The complex houses the urban rum distillery, which will produce four varieties of Thrasher’s Rum – White, Gold, Spiced, and Green Spiced, a one-of-a-kind botanical blend made to impart flavors of gin with herbs grown on the distillery’s rooftop garden.
