Michter’s Single Barrel Straight US 1 Rye is a meticulously crafted rye whiskey made from carefully selected American rye grain for maximum flavor.
Michter’s Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey
America’s first whiskey distilling company, Michter’s rich history dates back to 1753 when a farmer in Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain Valley distilled his first batch of whiskey from hardy rye. At one point, a Master Distiller left his family’s well-known distillery to join Michter’s, so he could be at a smaller, less cost-conscious company where he could make the finest whiskey, cost be damned. We continue this grand distilling tradition in Kentucky by never releasing our whiskeys until both our Master Distiller, Willie Pratt, and our panel of whiskey tasters deem them ready. In fact, our whiskey is often much older than the age statement on the label. At Michter’s, we produce single-barrel ryes, very small batch unblended American whiskey, very small batch bourbon, and single-barrel bourbon.
Renowned for rye, America’s oldest whiskey variety, since the earliest days of our history, we take the production of Michter’s Single Barrel Straight US 1 Rye extremely seriously. Our Michter’s US 1 Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. Ideal neat or in cocktails, every bottle of Michter’s US 1 Rye comes from a single barrel, a unique attribute reflecting our extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the absolute highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range.
