Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Michter's has a rich legacy of offering traditional American whiskeys of uncompromising quality with each type of whiskey aged to its peak maturity.  Michter's highly acclaimed portfolio includes single barrel rye, small batch American whiskey, sour mash whiskey, single barrel bourbon, and small batch bourbon.

Passionate about great whiskeys, Michter’s spares no expense to offer the greatest American whiskey possible.  Attention is given to every step in the production process, including details like yeast selection, fermentation temperature, distillation, wood selection and drying of staves, toasting and / or charring barrels, barreling proof, temperature and air flow conditions in the rickhouses where the barrels are aged, identifying the peak of maturation for bottling, and filtration protocol.

Michter’s celebrates an extraordinarily rich heritage that traces back to 1753, years before America’s Declaration of Independence.  Originally known as Shenk’s and later as Bomberger’s, the whiskey company which ultimately became known as Michter’s was founded by John Shenk, a Swiss Mennonite farmer, in Pennsylvania in 1753.

The passage of Prohibition in 1919 forced the distillery to shut its doors to the public. After the repeal of Prohibition, the distillery reopened and changed hands many times over the next few decades.  During the 1950s, Lou Forman, one of the distillery’s then-owners, created the modern Michter’s brand name by combining portions of his sons’ names – Michael and Peter.

In 1989, with the entire American whiskey industry suffering a prolonged downturn, Michter’s then-owners declared bankruptcy and abandoned the Michter’s trademark.  In the 1990s, Joseph J. Magliocco and his mentor Richard Dick Newman teamed up to resurrect the Michter’s brand in Kentucky.

Michter's whiskeys are globally recognized for their excellent quality, having been proclaimed “Best of the Best” by Robb Report, named “Best American Whiskey” by Food & Wine, and awarded “Distiller of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast.

Michter’s core US*1 range, including Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Sour Mash Whiskey, and American Whiskey, carry a recommended retail price in Holland of €59.95 per 70cl bottle.
