George Washington: Revolutionary War General, first President of the United States, shrewd businessman…and liquor connoisseur? Apparently so, and you can get in on it.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig explains:
Many say the older the whiskey, the better. So how about 250 years old? In this case, the whiskey isn’t that old, but the recipe is – and it’s George Washington’s personal recipe. Beginning next Thursday, Mount Vernon is selling 1,100 bottles of unaged whiskey from the first President – and local distiller’s – own recipe.
(Bashore) “Most distillers might run one or two stills, George Washington builds a distillery with five stills.”
Steve Bashore manages the Gristmill & Distillery at Mount Vernon. Each bottle will set you back $95.
The distillery opens for tours on Saturday.
