DISTILLERY & GRISTMILL | 5PM-6:30PM
This new event is a must-attend for serious whiskey lovers and history buffs alike.
Just 125 tickets are available for this exclusive experience at George Washington's Distillery prior to the main event on the estate. Tour the Distillery and Gristmill with the historic trades team that produces Mount Vernon's whiskies and brandies according to Washington's own recipes. Watch active fermenters working and get an inside look at the 18th-century methods used in our production of these spirits.
On site, you'll meet and mingle with experts and distillers from a variety of brands. Enjoy tastings from the participating distilleries as well as the most recent batch of 4-year-old George Washington Rye Whiskey. Watch 18th-century coopering demonstrations and sample historic baked treats made from flour ground at the Gristmill by Charleston-based chef Justin Cherry.
