A Unique Tasting Opportunity

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.

Enjoy a rare opportunity to taste Mount Vernon's one-of-a-kind distilled spirits.

  • Sample 3 distilled spirits, made using 18th-century distilling methods and techniques.
  • Discover the history of George Washington's whiskey from Mount Vernon's Historic Trades team, and find out how they distill spirits today.
  • Take a tour of the Distillery & Gristmill.


This event is held at George Washington's Distillery & Gristmill which is located 2.7 miles from the main estate entrance.  Guests may arrive directly at the facility and free parking is available on-site.
