George Washington’s Rye Whiskey® is the official state spirit of the Commonwealth of Virginia, thanks to a bill sponsored by Virginia Senator Adam Ebbin (D-30th) and signed by Governor Terry McAuliffe.

George Washington was once the largest whiskey producer in America. Today Mount Vernon continues the tradition of producing whiskey as well as other small batch distilled spirits at its historic Distillery & Gristmill site. George Washington’s Rye Whiskey® is available for purchase in-person only at the Shops at Mount Vernon and the Distillery & Gristmill site.
