George Washington Unaged Rye Whiskey (Estate Edition)
George Washington's Mount Vernon // New York, USA
This Estate Edition of George Washington Unaged Rye Whiskey is produced by New York's Hillrock Estate Distillery in partnership with the Mount Vernon, Virginia distillery that makes the original expression. George Washington's Mount Vernon distillery can only produce a limited amount of whiskey and the demand for their unaged rye is more than the small distillery can supply. They teamed with Hillrock Estate to expand distribution of this replica whiskey based on a 200 year old recipe calling for 60% rye, 35% corn, and 5% barley. Each batch of this Estate Edition bottling distilled by Hillrock Estate includes a portion of the rye distillate from the Mount Vernon distillery. It is also bottled without aging at 43% ABV in 375ml bottles.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
