product Details

J.W. Dant Americana Decanter 1969 / George Washington​

Joseph Washington Dant was a Kentucky distiller during the 1830s He was famous for making whisky using a log still. This was an old time method from when the settlers did not have the money for a copper still. A section of tree trunk would be hollowed out with a copper pipe running through it. The hollowed section would be filled with the fermented mash and steam fed through the pipe to start distillation.

This bourbon is bottled in an elegant blue decanter with a reproduction of a painting of George Washington by an artist called J. Fletcher.

Decanter weight: 2.0kg

Italian import
