Historic craft distilling...

Readers of this blog may remember that there was much celebration surrounding the announcement that the stills at Mount Vernon--where George Washington became one of the largest rye whiskey makers of his time in the late 1790s--were not only reconstructed but also producing distillates again.

Well, it turns out that when they fired up the still back in February 2009, the good people at Mount Vernon created a blog to chronicle the event. It's a fascinating look at the reclamation of a historic rye recipe and distilling process. Check it out.
