This is one that will make all of your friends and relatives stop in their tracks as their eyes pass over your home bar.
Michter's began 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.
