About the Greater DC and Baltimore Region
George Washington’s role in American whiskey didn’t end when the last protestors were pardoned after the Whiskey Rebellion. In fact, Washington began commercially distilling his own spirits in 1797 at Mount Vernon in one of the largest distilleries in the country at the time. Operating under his own tax, Washington paid the federal government $332 thousand or million? over the course of 1798.
Whiskey was far from safe, though. Prohibition had long-term effects on distilling in the Mid-Atlantic, causing most distilleries to shut their doors and the famous rye whiskey to disappear from shelves. Lucky for us, craft distilleries in the nation’s capital and the heart of Maryland Rye in and around Baltimore offer their own unique take on the rebellious spirit of the Whiskey Rebellion region. You can even step back in time at Mount Vernon and take a sip of Washington’s whiskey. History comes full circle.
