Michter's 'Barrel Strength'Rye Whiskey Kentucky

(0) No Reviews yet

Michter's has done it again! They're always pushing the envelope by creating new and innovative whiskies. They have reached another milestone with this rye release. Maturation in charred oak barrels begins at 103 proof -lower than industry standard- and is then bottled at barrel strength. Distiller Willie Pratt believe this process produces a richer, more full-bodied whiskey and we are inclined to agree. Butterscotch, cinnamon and toasted vanilla aromas give way to a spice-laden backbone and long finish. Great rye doesn't come along everyday, you'd be wise to grab a bottle of this very limited release!



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.
