    Originally named 'Shenk's' and 'Bombergers', the Michter's Distillery was based in Pennysylvania and was known as one of the oldest - if not THE oldest distilleries in America. However, following it's closure in 1990, it was relaunched in 1996 when Joe Magliocco and friend Dick Newman discovered the Michter's brand had been legally abandoned. For the princely sum of $275 the pair purchased the brand rights and began sourcing whiskies from a variety of distilleries, mainly from Kentucky. Relationships were formed with the likes of KDB and Early Times, before a new distillery was opened in the state and their own spirit ran off the still in 2015.

    The US*1 mark highlights the quality and consistently that is aimed to go into every bottle. In the case of their Straight Rye, a mashbill of 53% rye, 33% corn and 14% barley produces a rye whiskey on the sweeter side, with notes of mint fondant and buttered popcorn coming through before drier hints of cinnamon and nutmeg turn up at the finish. It's a great sipper but if you're looking for a bold rye to work in the likes of a Manhattan this might not do the job you're looking for.
