In honor of the launch of #MADEINDC program by Think Local First and Small Business Development Program, MITD has decided to highlight local businesses that are a part of the program: businesses that design, make/produce, and/or assemble products in the District of Columbia.
Think first DC and DC Small business started the #MadeinDC Program as a response to the momentum and growth of the Maker and creative economy in Washington, DC, the Made in DC Program will function as a citywide campaign and platform, creating opportunity for Makers to come together for resource and experience sharing, as well as function as a conduit and messenger between Makers and local government.
Today we will be featuring: Shrub District
Founded in 2015, they make cocktail vinegar that will brighten up your life (and your cocktail game). The cocktail mixers capture the bright flavors of the season's best fruit and they cook and bottle in DC.
