U.S. presidents and alcohol: Commander-in-chief booze consumption

Master distillers from Scotland end a three-day visit to George Washington's Mount Vernon estate Tuesday. They're at the first president's reconstructed distillery to whip up a special batch of Scotch. President Washington wasn't the only commander in chief fond of booze, however.

President Reagan signed the National Minimum Drinking Age Act into law in 1984, but he wasn't anti-booze. Here he is drinking a bottle of beer at a Labor Day barbecue in 1980.
