Mount Vernon — the one in Virginia — revives George Washington’s whiskey

Starting April 4, the George Washington Distillery in Virginia plans to sell 1,100 bottles of whiskey made according to Washington's recipe and original techniques. The whiskey, made from water nearby and locally grown grain, will cost $95 a bottle at the gift shop of Washington's main estate in Mount Vernon, Va., and at the distillery and gristmill.
