WASHINGTON (AP) - Rye whiskey using George Washington's own recipe will soon
go on sale at the first president's Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.
The presidential home reconstructed Washington's distillery and will make
more than 1,100 bottles of unaged whiskey available beginning April 4. The
bottles sell for $95 each.
Mount Vernon says the rye is the most authentic version of Washington's
whiskey available. Washington was a detailed record keeper, and distillers used
the same grain recipe and fermentation process as it was done 250 years ago.
Washington's Distillery and Gristmill site opens at Mount Vernon for the
season on Saturday.
