Mount Ver­non

Where Washington - - THE GUIDE -

Vis­i­tors to Ge­orge Washington’s bu­colic river­side es­tate get a taste of 18th- cen­tury life in more ways than one. The man­sion has been fur­nished ac­cord­ing to a 1799 in­ven­tory, and the dis­tillery three miles down the road was re­con­structed with the same at­ten­tion to his­tor­i­cal de­tail. You can take home a piece of that his­tory with Ge­orge Washington’s Rye Whiskey, re­cently named Vir­ginia’s of­fi­cial state spirit, made ac­cord­ing to the first pres­i­dent’s own recipe and meth­ods. It’s avail­able at the dis­tillery and the Mount Ver­non gift shop. 3200 Mount Ver­non Me­mo­rial High­way, Mount Ver­non, Va., 703.780.2000, mountver­non.org
