Michter's Original Sour Mash Whiskey Kentucky

Avg. Rating: 

Akin to a sourdough bread starter, sour mash whiskey uses small amounts of an existing stash to nurture the fermentation of the next batch. This whiskey boasts a soft bouquet of pine and stone fruit with fresh roasted coffee and spice cake on the palate, while the razor-sharp finish doesn't seem to quit. There's definitely nothing sour about this whiskey!

Michter's has been distilling whiskey in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania since 1753 - that's long before Kentucky was even settled and over twenty years before the Declaration of Independence was signed. The distillery changed hands several times over the next two hundred years until one Adolf H. Hirsch, a former executive of the Schenley Co., bought some aged stocks of the whiskey from the 1960's and bottled a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old under the A.H. Hirsch label - two of the most highly coveted whiskies in the last century. Unfortunately, Michter's Distillery closed in 1988 after making the only post-Prohibition pot still Bourbon in America. Today, Master Distiller Willy Pratt moved this American heritage brand to Kentucky, where he bottles rare whiskies distilled according to the Michter's tradition and high quality standards.
