The mash bill, or recipe, was discovered by researchers examining the distillery ledgers for 1798 and 1799. His whiskey consisted of 60% rye, 35% corn and 5% malted barley. The records also indicate that George Washington’s whiskey was distilled at least twice before being sent to market. In Washington’s time whiskey was not aged and was sold in its original form. The whiskey in this bottle accurately represents that process.
This boxed gift set includes a 50 ml mini bottle of George Washington’s Rye Whiskey® and a commemorative shot glass. The black textured box is embossed with gold foil featuring the image of the distillery and has a rich burgundy foam insert. The clear, square shot glass has an image of the distillery with George Washington’s signature and “George Washington’s Distillery” printed in 22K gold ink. Shot glass and gift box are made in America.
