In 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."

Among their Limited Release whiskeys, you'll find the US*1 Toasted Barrel Finish Rye. The team at Michter's likes to rely on tried-and-true practices with their distilling, but they aren't afraid to experiment on their never-ending quest for crafting the finest whiskey. Their continued research of rye whiskey finishing barrels has led them to this expression. It's based on their US*1 Kentucky Straight Rye that goes for a round of finishing in a custom-toasted barrel that was made of wood that was air-dried for 2 years before being custom-toasted. These unique rye barrels range from 107.2 proof to 111.2 proof.
