George Washington’s 5-Year Premium Rye Whiskey®

In 2011, George Washington's Distillery at Mount Vernon released its first aged rye whiskey. Over the intervening years, we have continued to age our whiskey longer and have moved from 25-gallon barrels to 53-gallon barrels, #3 char.

This Premium Straight Rye Whiskey release marks our first 5-year-old rye whiskey. Bottled at 93 proof and non-chill filtered, this single barrel release marks a new benchmark for George Washington's Distillery.

We continue to offer fine whiskey made in the most traditional manner: Double distilled in our five wood-fired pot stills, using 18th-century methods.
