Did you know that you can get your hands on George Washington's very own whiskey? One of the most coveted bottles of whiskey on earth, our former president's signature rye whiskey - which, as of 2017, is now the Official State Spirit of the Commonwealth of Virginia - is still being churned out at his Distillery and Gristmill, located a few miles from his Fairfax County, Virginia estate. Learn about the process of making the famous whiskey, as well as the flour at the gristmill, or start your tour of the American Whiskey Trail, of which Washington's Distillery is a part of. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from April 1 through November 1. Admission to the distillery and gristmill are included with general admission to George Washington's Mount Vernon.
