Michter's Barrel Strength Rye Limited Release Bourbon is created with tradition in mind at the Mitcher's Distillery in Kentucky, Louisville. It was created in pursue of Michter’s goal of making the greatest American whiskey. In the 18th century, a Swiss Mennonite farmer by the name of John Shenk settled his family near Pennsylvania's Blue Mountain Valley. After a few years of hard work and long hours, Shenk was harvesting more grains that he could sell at the local market. As a result, Shenk purchased a still and began distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. His distillery, which was eventually named Michter's, became the United States' first distilling company. After years of experimenting in different barrel finishes. It is a barrel strength bourbon that is aged for an additional period in a second custom barrel. This second barrel is assembled from 24 month air-dried wood and then toasted resulting in a highly flavorful bourbon. Michter's US*1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey is made from a mash comprised primarily of fresh, plump rye grains. Once the grains are harvested, they are sheared so that during fermentation, the grains are saturated with more flavor. After the grains have been fermented, they are distilled through a copper-pot still before being matured in charred, American oak barrels. The barrels are allowed to rest in a heat-cycled warehouse, which forces the wood to expand and contract as the temperature rises and falls. This heat cycling causes the whiskey and wood to mingle with each other, and contributes notes of marmalade and light caramel to the rye.

Any whisky connoisseur will love a Glencairn glass! All spirits have their Glass that bests compliments the experience. Glencairn Crystal is the ideal glass for whiskey, it was designed by Raymond Davidson nearly 25 years earlier, however, its development involved gathering the master blenders from the five largest whiskey companies and asking them to help perfect his initial design. Even though the whiskey glass's traditional style is an Old Fashioned whiskey tumbler, it does not hold and focus the aromas as much for the experience of the drinker as the other styles, which curve inward towards the top of the glass. While not all drinkers may find the strong aroma produced by such glasses, inward-curved glasses are often preferred by connoisseurs who consider the aroma especially important to the experience.
