From Colonial Williamsburg: Past and Present Podcasts—

"George Washington's retirement venture had a high alcohol content. Mount Vernon's Director of Preservation, Dennis Pogue, leads us on a tour through Washington's whiskey distillery."

The Colonial Williamsburg site also has an informative essay that offers interested readers more information on the history of whiskey in Colonial America.
