Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye, 53%

2 items left

Renowned for Rye Whiskey (America's oldest whiskey variety) since the company's origins in 1753, the Michter's US*1 Straight Rye is made from selected American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavour.  Every bottle comes from a single barrel, reflecting Michter's extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey of the absolute highest quality.

Tasting note:  Beautifully floral, with citrus, butterscotch, and classic peppery spice.  Perfect sipped neat or in cocktails.

About the distillery

Michter's distilling heritage traces back to 1753 when Swiss Mennonite farmer John Shenk founded the original whiskey company and distillery in the Pennsylvania Blue Mountain Valley.

Michter's more recent history, however, really begins in the 1990s when two men sought to revive the much loved (but sadly declined) brand down in Kentucky, the heartland of American Whiskey.

Their aim was simple: to honour the Michter's legacy by producing the best whiskey possible, cost be damned!

The Michter's range of US*1 Whiskies offer a truly delicious insight into the long history of the company, and indeed American Whiskey production.

Crafted using only the finest ingredients and traditional, costly techniques, there's a rich yet mellow character to these gorgeous whiskeys, which are hard to match for sheer enjoyability.

As John Mariani of Bloomberg points out, these are American Whiskeys whose elegance and complexity will stand up to any Scotch or Cognac drinkers palate.
