Notes

Michter's US-1 American whiskey is the reawakening of an iconic brand of American heritage that predates not only Prohibition but the American Revolution. Today's incarnation is meant to honor those whiskey traditions.

In the 2010 Wine Enthusiasts review, they suggest "It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild."

About the Producer:

Michter's American whiskeys is the reawakening of an iconic brand of American heritage that predates not only Prohibition but the American Revolution. The heritage comes from Swiss Mennonite farmers distilling rye whiskey in 1753 and legend has it tht this whiskey warmed the revolutionaries at Valley Forge. Since the 1980s, the brand has been produced by contract with distilleries in Kentucky with no distillery to call its own. Today's incarnation is meant to honor those whiskey traditions. Michter's has announced the construction of a $7.8 million distillery in Louisville to serve as the home for its whiskey. While past expressions have been listed with the Tax and Trad Bureau with Kentuck Bourbon Distillers, we have opted to list Michter's as the producer in light of their new production facilities. Certainly, from the time of the announced construction (2011) and the actual whiskey coming out of the new distillery (possibly 10 years or more hence), there will be a period of time where the actual source of the whiskey will be some kind of blend between a contract labeling situation and their own production.
