You will sample 3 distilled spirits, hear about the history of distilling spirits, and tour George Washington’s reconstructed gristmill and distillery.

This event is held at George Washington’s Distillery & Gristmill, located 2.7 miles from Mount Vernon. Tastings are offered on Saturdays in September: Sept. 7, Sept. 14, Sept. 21, and Sept. 28.
