Cheers to George Washington This Holiday Season

Do you have a person on your list who is impossible to shop for? The Shops at Mount Vernon have the solution: the George Washington Whiskey Gift Set and George Washington Special Reserve Madeira Wine. 

The Whiskey Gift Set includes a 50 ml bottle of George Washington's Rye Whiskey and a commemorative shot glass. The whiskey is unaged, as was common in the 18th century, and was made using Washington's recipe at the George Washington's Distillery. These distilling practices accurately represents the process that Washington's distillers would have used.

The square shot glass has an image of the distillery with George Washington's signature and "George Washington's Distillery" printed in 22K gold ink. The set comes in an easy-to-wrap black textured gift box embossed with gold foil featuring an image of the distillery and a rich burgundy foam insert.

The George Washington Special Reserve Madeira Wine is produced in Madeira, Portugal, and this 500 ml bottle is available exclusively at The Shops at Mount Vernon. Washington regularly imported Madeira while he was at home and on the front lines. This gently sweet wine has a soft, velvety texture and pays homage to the "rich old" style of wine that Washington loved.

Stop by The Shops at Mount Vernon Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. or Sunday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. to get yours!
