Cotton & Reed
Cotton & Reed co-founders Reed Walker and Jordan Cotton became friends while working as strategists for NASA and the aerospace industry. They discovered a shared passion for spirits at work happy hours, and decided to leave their desk jobs to start their rum distillery. Under the direction of veteran barman Lukas B. Smith, Cotton & Reed is now serving award-winning cocktails at the distillery tasting room next to Union Market. You can find their products at bars, restaurants, and liquor stores across DC, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
