About Michter's 25 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon WhiskeyIn the 18th century, a Swiss Mennonite farmer by the name of John Shenk settled his family near Pennsylvania's Blue Mountain Valley. Within a few years, Shenk was harvesting more grains that he could sell, and so he began distilling the excess grains into whiskey. Shenk's distillery, which was eventually named Michter's Distillery, became the United States' first distilling company. Just two decades after Shenk opened the doors to his distillery, General George Washington began purchasing Michter's Distillery Whiskey in order to fortify his men as they camped through a long and brutal winter at Valley Forge. Michter's Distillery, as the saying goes, was the whiskey that warmed the American Revolution.
The passage of Prohibition in 1919 forced Michter's Distillery, along with nearly every other distillery in the United States, to close. In the early 1990s however, Joseph J. Magliocco teamed up with Richard Newman in an effort to resurrect the brand. "When we set up our whiskey program for Michter's Distillery," says Magliocco, "Dick and I wanted to get back to the 'cost be damned' roots and produce the finest whiskey possible. Our goal was to show that whiskey made in the United States could be the equal of great whiskey made anywhere in the world."
It's the two 25-year-olds that are the crown jewels in Michter's lineup, the range-topping Straight Rye and Straight Bourbon expressions. These limited-production whiskeys are available as stock permits and have spent a quarter of a century in the distillery's finest barrels before being granted the seal of approval by Master Distiller Dan McKee and Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson. Michter's 25 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon is aged in new, fire-charred American white oak and is bottled at 116.2 proof. It offers great complexity and an exquisite balance of all the classic bourbon notes.
