“We are honoured to be the newest addition to the local distilling and brewing community in Ivy City, and grateful to the customers who caused our Bourbon to sell out before we even opened our distillery doors,” said Brett Thompson, Magnus master distiller.

“Folks interested in trying the Bourbon can visit our cocktail lounge, the Murray Hill Club, and order up a glass from our special supply or enjoy one of Nicole Hassoun’s custom gin cocktails.”
