In 1799, George Washington's distillery produced nearly 11,000 gallons, making it one of the largest whiskey distilleries in America.

Today, a faithfully reconstructed working distillery produces small batch spirits on site.

The general tour does not include tastings.

At the gristmill, watch as we grind corn as it was done in the 18th century.
