A couple of the guys on “Moonshiners” were making Rye and claiming to have George Washington’s recipe.

unaged whiskey

Thanks, but I'll be out in the barn with a rusty knife and the vice.

Ain't no way, no how, after drinking what them boys in Tennessee produce, that I'd touch shine, legal or not. Gotta be white oak barrel aged.

I'd rather gouge my eyes out with a hairpin than touch unaged whiskey.

Don’t know if they can call it his recipe - unless they can get the exact yeast he used!

Oh, the liquor was spilled on the barroom floor
And the bar was closed for the night
When out of the hole came a little brown mouse
And sat in the pale moon light

He lapped up the liquor on the barroom floor
And back on his haunches he sat
And all night long you could hear him roar
Bring on the god damned cat!

I used to have election parties where I would make a Benjamin Franklin recipe of Rum, oranges, and sugar, and let it age in an old gallon jug Whiskey I had from the 1800s, it was very good and very sneaky, people would swig it in long tasty swallows not knowing what was coming.

Guys could buy a bottle of this for an election party and split the cost per glass.

George Washington’s liquor had considerable punch.
This is his eggnog recipe.

Blend together

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
12 Eggs

Do not drink within 20 feet of fire or open flame.
