Spies and Spirits of the Revolution
November 14, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Whiskey, spies, and rebellion: a winning combination for the Patriots in the 1770s and for you in 2017!
Spend an evening enjoying tales and tactics of the cunning spies George Washington depended on in the magnificent mansion dedicated to the War’s memory and toast them with whiskey distilled just as it was at that time.
This evening you’ll enjoy an Old Fashioned cocktail and other whiskey and cider samples from Wigle Whiskey and Threadbare, Pittsburgh’s award-winning craft distillery and new ciderhouse, while the Spy Museum’s Vince Houghton and Jacqueline Van Eyl give you an exciting rundown of the wildest true tales of the brave and wily men and women who spied for Independence.
After their talk try more Wigle samples, tour Anderson House, the home of the Society of the Cincinnati—founded by Revolutionary War officers, and try your hand at using George Washington’s own invisible ink.
