George Washingtons rye whiskey going on sale
Rye whiskey using George Washingtons own recipe will soon go on sale at the first presidents Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.
The presidential home reconstructed Washingtons 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 Washingtons 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.
No word on whether itll be available online or only in person at Mt. Vernon.

Cooks can do anything. Even help keep Mt. Vernon a going concern. ;)
George Washington’s liquor had considerable punch.
This is his eggnog recipe.
1 Pint Brandy
1/2 Pint Rye Whiskey
1/4 Pint Rum
1/4 Pint sherry
1-1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Quart Cream
1 Quart Milk
Do not drink within 20 feet of fire or open flame.
As far as the whiskey, they should be patient and age it for at least 8 years. I would wait.
Nice, this is a good reminder to make another visit to Mount Vernon.
