I'll Drink to This


Drunk History: Mount Vernon's Secret Distillery The original distillery was destroyed in a fire in 1814.
All was not lost. During an archaeological excavation starting in 1999, the Distillery’s stone foundation was discovered. Between the foundation and other archaeological findings, a reconstruction of the distillery was begun in 2005 and completed in 2007. Since then, the distillery has brought Washington’s spirits back to Americans. Previous runs at the reconstructed distillery have included rye whiskey. For the first time in 200 years, the reconstructed distillery was used this year to once again distill peach brandy – 400 bottles of it to be exact.

Your Say

"... Washington’s exact recipe and instructions for distilling peach brandy are not known ..."

So it's all nouveau, the distillery rebuilt to some architect's notions and the booze distilled with the same recipes as three quarters of the stuff already on the shelves. Hmm, I reckon all they are selling is the brand.

Hucksters like that deserve a punch in the face, they piss me off.
