Whiskey in America: Education and Libation

Recent attention toward the reconstruction of George Washington’s distillery has sparked interest in spirits distillation in America. On Saturday, April 25 at 4PM join us at the Nye Museum for a history talk and whiskey tasting led by Luke Pecoraro

Recent attention toward the reconstruction of George Washington’s distillery, a 5-still commercial operation on one of Washington’s farms from 1797-c. 1802, has sparked interest in spirits distillation in America. The distillery burned to the ground in 1814 and was lost until rediscovered by Mount Vernon archaeologists in 1997. After extensive reconstruction, the distillery is once again operational, making it one of the few places where whiskey is made just as it was in the early Republic.
