Visit fully functioning reconstructions of George Washington's Distillery® and Gristmill, located 2.7 miles from the estate’s main entrance.

Come see the mighty gears turning and the stones grinding at our Gristmill, where Washington produced flour and cornmeal. And within our functioning distillery, you can see where we make George Washington's whiskey. In 1799, it was the largest whiskey distillery in America.
