Take a VIP tour of Mount Vernon's Distillery and Gristmill and observe Mount Vernon's tradesmen make whiskey using the same recipe and methods as George Washington. Experience up-close and personal access to the distilling process that occurs at the Distillery only twice a year. See the mash fermented in barrels before running through the stills to make whiskey.

Watch the water-powered mill stones grind wheat used in the mash, and follow the grain through the fascinating Oliver Evans automated mill system within the building. Enjoy a special tasting of George Washington's whiskey at the conclusion of the event!
