For all you Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey enthusiasts, let me introduce you to an outsider that deserves more accolades than most of the other liquid gold that comes out of the great state of Kentucky!
But the expertise that goes into the production of Michter’s 1 can be attributed to Master Distiller Willie Pratt, a Louisville, Kentucky native and a Brown -Forman veteran. During his tenure there, Mr. Pratt co-chaired a special committee formed specifically to study the art of barrel construction in order to identify optimal distillation and aging conditions for whiskey flavour.
Established in 1753, Michter’s is one of the oldest bourbon distilleries in the world. Legend has it that when General George Washington wanted to rally the boys in the dead of winter at Valley Forge, he ordered shipments of Michter’s whiskey to lift their spirits…and it worked (America is here today, aint it?)
Michters has an entire line of fine spirits crafted in the same tradition, but with varying mash bills to give us a superior whiskey lineup.
Michters U.S. 1 is an absolute favorite springtime bourbon. However bad your mood, a few sips will raise your spirits, and no matter what cocktails you may construct with Michters, they will come out winners
Michters U.S. 1 Bourbon an…A MUST BUY!
