Michter’s is an iconic American Whiskey Distillery that dates back all the way to 1753! That’s not to say it hasn’t had its struggles along the way which included filing for bankruptcy in 1989. A couple of years later Michter’s would be rescued/relaunched, though it would take almost 20 years for a true resurgence within the marketplace. Today, Michter’s is back to being ON TOP with their core products under the US*1 line-up of Rye, Bourbon, American Whiskey and Sour Mash, leading the charge. The Rye and Bourbon are phenomenal values that you can generally find year-round, but the American Whiskey and Sour Mash are the two that have become nearly impossible to get! The Michter’s 10-year…”fo-get-abou-it!”
With COVID destroying the current restaurant/bar business across the world, allocations have slowly opened up and allowed us to purchase a more generous inventory that ever previously imagined. THAT SAID, this isn’t a “forever” or even recurring opportunity, so today is the day to really take advantage of a truly amazing line-up of whiskey’s at our best pricing ever (especially for members)!

Upon its being named “Whisky Of The Year” for 2019 by The Whisky Exchange, Michter’s US1 Sour Mash Whiskey became the first whiskey made in the United States to ever achieve this honor.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Michter’s Original Sour Mash Whiskey was the distillery’s single most popular product. While the “Sour Mash” moniker originated from the whiskey production process of the same name – whereby some previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented, much like making sourdough bread – Michter’s Original Sour Mash earned distinction for its unique taste. With its unique grain selection, it cannot be categorized as a rye or a bourbon. After disappearing from the market in 1989, Michter’s Original Sour Mash Whiskey made a triumphant return in 2012 with its introduction into the US1 line. Staying true to the profile and palate of its predecessor, Michter’s US1 Sour Mash has quickly become a favorite of whiskey enthusiasts.
86 proof (43% Alcohol by Volume)
Warm toasted burnt sugar notes with spice, sweet, smoky fruit, candied cherries, and honeyed vanilla, remarkably elegant. Starts out like a bourbon, finishes like a rye.

Unlike Bourbon or Rye, which, by definition, must be aged in new oak barrels, our US1 Unblended American Whiskey is aged in a way that utilizes whiskey-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavor profile. In late 2013, then Master Distiller Willie Pratt agreed to re-release our US1 Unblended American Whiskey after a nearly three-year absence from the market, deeming it “just right” and “the best it’s ever been.” Crucially, our US1 Unblended American Whiskey never contains grain neutral spirits – hence its “unblended” distinction.
83.4 proof (41.7% Alcohol by Volume)
“Deep butterscotch and vanilla notes, hints of caramel and dried fruit with a ripened fruit finish.”

Reflecting the spirit of the Bluegrass State, Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is nuanced, mellow and earthy. Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is also available with personalized Fort Nelson Select labeling at Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery.
