Brandy Produced in the 18th Century
George Washington maintained orchards on his estate and these orchards supplied the peaches needed to produce the brandy at the distillery.
The distillery ledgers indicate that small amounts of peach brandy were produced in 1798 and 1799. A portion of the peach brandy was sold at market and the remainder was sent to the Mansion for use by the Washington family.
