Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey
One of their most limited production items, Michter’s 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye continues the legacy of America’s first whiskey variety (rye) from America’s first whiskey company (Michter’s, originally known as Shenk’s). Deep notes of vanilla and toffee, toasted almonds and cinnamon with an ample dose of crushed pepper and a hint of orange citrus.
Located in Shively, a section of Louisville with a legendary whiskey heritage, Michter’s Distillery is a 7.5 acre, 67,000 square foot facility. A fully-licensed distilled spirits plant (DSP KY-20003), the facility is currently home to all of Michter’s processing and bottling operations, as well as two of its small pot stills. Additionally, in October 2014, Michter’s installed a custom-built 32 inch diameter, 46 foot high copper column still with a distinctive copper pot still doubler. Designed by Vendome's Rob Sherman, Michter’s Master Distiller Pratt, and Michter's Distiller Pam Heilmann, this new still will allow Michter's to eventually bring more great whiskey to the market to satisfy growing demand.
