The Cotton & Reed Story

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 a distillery called Cotton & Reed. With the help of Distiller Chas Jefferson, Barman Lukas B. Smith, and Engineer Dr. Jen Phelps, they’re bringing a portfolio of naturally complex spirits to DC this winter.

Our Spirits
Great spirits owe everything to their origins. Cotton & Reed’s products embrace the quirks and complexities of each source ingredient, using wild yeast strains and gentle hand distillation in our custom still to bring out the richest flavors each plant has to offer. From our white rum that doesn’t shy away from cane’s depth of flavor to our dry spiced rum that accentuates it with a one-of-a-kind botanical blend, Cotton & Reed’s products aren’t afraid to show their roots.

Coming Soon to Union Market
DC’s historic Union Market District has been the center of our city’s food production and distribution industry for nearly a century. Populated today with butchers, greengrocers, beansprout growers, and a beautiful new market building featuring local food producers, the neighborhood is truly a unique and vital feature of DC’s industrial landscape. Cotton & Reed is proud to carry this legacy forward and help the old neighborhood grow by bringing distillation there for the first time.
