Description

Often significantly older than the age statement on the label, only a select few barrels age with the elegance required for inclusion in these highly limited releases. Every bottle of their excellent rye comes from a single barrel, highlighting the quality of their craft. The grandes dames of the portfolio, Michter’s 25-Year Rye and 25-Year Bourbon represent more than a quarter century of maturation in the Distillery’s finest barrels. TASTING NOTES Deep notes of vanilla and toffee, toasted almonds and cinnamon with an ample dose of crushed pepper and a hint of orange citrus. Our Michter’s US 1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain.

Entering the barrel at a lower proof of 103 actually costs Michter’s more money than a higher proof in terms of warehousing however Michter’s believe this produces a Kentucky Rye Whiskey which is richer and smoother. Each barrel of rye is selected by Michter’s Master of Maturation when it reaches maturity, usually between five and eight years.

The 10-Year Rye, 10-Year Bourbon and 20-Year Bourbon expressions reflect the exceptional results of uncompromising craftsmanship and Kentucky’s unrivaled climate for aging outstanding whiskey. They only sources wood for their casks that has been air dried between 18 and up to 48 months, leading to less tannins being imparted into the whisky. The US 1 expressions, so named to honor Michter’s heritage harkening back to America’s first whiskey company, consist of some of the finest single barrel and truly small batch whiskeys available. You can expect notes of sweet toffee, cherries and subtle spice leading into a creamy finish with a beautifully dry, oaky finish. 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.

Moreover, rather than use the one size fits all approach of many distillers, Michter’s use the different filtration mediums and techniques best suited to each of their individual whiskey offerings – despite it being time consuming and costly – to highlight each expression’s best qualities. It's made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. This gives the whiskey citrus notes and a buttery texture and helps to balance the more spicy and peppery flavours that rye is known for.
