In 1797, George Washington established one of the largest whiskey distilleries in America. The stone still house included a distilling room outfitted with five copper pot stills, a storage cellar for whiskey, and an office. In 1799, the year of George Washington’s death, the distillery produced more than 10,500 gallons of rye whiskey and brandy. The original distillery burned in 1814 but was reconstructed based on archaeological finds and extensive study of Washington’s records.

An abbreviated 1783 quote from Washington is etched on one side of this sturdy whiskey glass. The full original quote read “An extra ration of liquor to be issued to every man tomorrow, to drink Perpetual Peace, Independence & Happiness to the United States of America.” Cheers to that!

This glass is approximately 3” x 3 ½”, dishwasher safe and comes neatly stored in a white gift box.
