"Starting next week, visitors of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia will be able to walk away with more than just a figurine of the first president — they’ll also be able to purchase his famous rye whiskey.
On April 4, the plantation will be serving $95 bottles of whiskey from Washington’s reconstructed distillery, which is about three miles down the road from his plantation.
A total of 1,100 bottles of the un-aged whiskey will be available."
More than 1,100 bottles of Washington's unaged whiskey go on sale April 4.
Starting next week, visitors of George Washington
It will be cool when the bowl goes on sale that Martha used to pack for him before he got home everyday.
Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.
Snake, let me know if you want me to pick one up for you.

Ooof. Unaged whiskey is rough. Unaged rye seems outright painful. I have to think you could only use it as paint thinner.
And no use letting it sit. It's not going to age in the bottle.
In the bourbon thread someone posted about a little aging barrel you can buy and use yourself...Any chance this crap could get good after say 5 years of sitting around in some wood?
And George knew it would be a good cash crop for the southern states!
Very slim chance. We have no idea what the mash bill is on this, and I imagine that it is utter shit. The high price is probably because of the low volume, not the quality of the ingredients. They are essentially selling paint thinner to rubes for $90 and passing it off as whiskey.
Man....I don't know enough about how that works. Once it's bottled, can it be reaged? Also, the barrel itself makes a big difference I think. And then, I guess it's not really George Washington's unaged rye anymore either.
It's a blatant cash grab. The good news is that you can get drunk off of it. But it's a lot to pay and to go through in order to catch a buzz. You could sniff some glue and save $93 and probably enjoy the experience of consuming it just as much
And can you even call it whiskey? Aren't there laws against something not aged properly being sold as whiskey? At least state by state? Maybe Virginia doesn't have those laws.
Actually, Jack Daniels out of all places has an Unaged rye that is supposed to be pretty good. I haven't had it, but some reviews that I have seen speak highly of it.
should just call it George Washington's Hobo's Choice select spirit, now with less blindness
This whiskey is guaranteed to be awful for drinking.
His teeth were made of wool.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Seriously - save your money guys.
Something labeled as bourbon must be aged in charred oak barrels. There is no specific time, but under a certain amount of time (I think 4 years) it must be labeled with the time aged (in case of a blend, the least aged bourbon must be used).
I am not sure if "whiskey" or "rye" has those types of stipulations. The only thing I know about rye is it must be at least 51% rye in order to be called rye, and in order to label it "straight rye whiskey," emphasis on the straight, it needs to age 2 years.
So the estate is making a money grab by selling moonshine made using the First President's recipe?
Nothing could sound more Amurrican! USA USA USA!
When do they go on sale? I need teeth.
So you're sayin he had furry teeth?
