Renowned for rye, America’s first whiskey, since our founding in 1753, we take production of every barrel of Michter’s Rye very seriously. Our US*1 Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to enable the saturation of more flavor during fermentation. It is then aged in a heated warehouse. This premium rye has hints of light spice, black pepper, marmalade and plum, spicy grain and light caramel. Production: Single barrel. Limited quantities. Bottling Strength: 84.8 Proof (42.4% Alcohol by Volume) Cooperage: Fire-charred, new American white oak barrels.
