A Label to Make Our First President Proud

Given the unique character of our whiskey -- using George Washington's recipe and the first whiskey made and bottled at Washington's distillery in almost 200 years -- we wanted a label that was equally distinctive. We think that our designer, Allan Guy, really rose to the occasion to produce a beautiful label; distiller and bottler extraordinaire, Joe Dangler, seems to agree.


  1. Are there any surviving labels from the 18th century for comparison with the new labels?

  2. Sear sskipstress,

    George Washington did not bottle his whiskey -- in fact putting whiskey in labeled bottles was not common practice until after the Civil War --so we don't have any period labels on which to model ours.
