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. 375ml bottles of a variety of distilled spirits are available for purchase at the Shops at Mount Vernon (and at the seasonal gift shop at the Distillery and Gristmill). Each of these bottles are produced at George Washington's reconstructed Distillery using 18th-century distilling methods and techniques. Quantities are limited, check the Mount Vernon website for availability or call the Shops at Mount Vernon directly at 703-799-6301.
