|Americaís first whiskey distilling company, Michterís rich history dates back to 1753 when a farmer in Pennsylvaniaís Blue Mountain Valley distilled his first batch of whiskey from hardy rye. At one point a Master Distiller left his familyís well-known distillery to join Michterís 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 Michterís we produce single barrel ryes, very small batch unblended American whiskey, very small batch bourbon, and single barrel bourbon.
