Description

Michter's US*1 Unblended is aged using bourbon-soaked barrels to achieve a rich and unique flavour profile. Pleasant spiciness on the palate is followed by tobacco and leather with butterscotch and caramel sweetness. A well balanced whiskey that starts with layers of aromatic fruit, toasty spice and is incredibly easy drinking!

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.

 

Originally known as Shenk's and later as Bomberger's, this whiskey company ultimately became known as Michter's. It was founded by John Shenk in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, in 1753. In the mid-1800s, Pennsylvania Dutchman Abraham Bomberger bought the distillery and it was then known for many decades as Bomberger's. After changing hands many times over the course of Prohibition, eventually Lou Forman created the Michter's brand name by combining his sons' names, Michael and Peter. Though sadly, the distillery closed in 1989 due to bankruptcy.

However, Michter’s prevails! Joseph Magliocco and Richard Newman joined forces, both men with a passion for whiskey. After filing for the abandoned Michter’s trademark, they planned to resurrect Michter's in the heart of the modern American whiskey industry, Kentucky.

Their current historic Fort Nelson site was first built in 1890 and purchased by Michter’s in 2012, after years of restoration the site opened to the public in February 2019. As well as their Fort Nelson site, the company owns Michter’s Shively Distillery in Louisville, as well as its 145-acre farm in Springfield, Kentucky.
