Another expensive whisky but no more another expensive brand! This is the magic and value of the signature from former president George H.W. Bush. The George Washington’s Straight Rye whiskey has generated a sum of $35,000 lately and all thanks to Bush. The highest bid was made by John R. Frank, vice chairman of Sidney Frank Importing Co., engaged in importing spirits such as Tommy Bahama rum and Jagermeister. The sales generated through this bid would benefit Historic Mount Vernon’s educational programs.
